When the injured person’s lack of care for himself contributes to his injury, recovery for his losses is limited to the percentage of the negligence attributed to him, called comparative negligence. The money losses recoverable by the injured person will be diminished in proportion to the percent of negligence attributable to the injured person for causing his own harm by failing to care for himself. [Li v . Yellow Cab Company of California (1975) 13 C3d 804]
