-126§ 1357. Willful acts and negligence; contributory negligence Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his property or person, except as far as the latter has willfully brought the injury upon himself. Want of ordinary care on the part of the injured person does not bar a recovery, but the damages shall be diminished by the court or jury in proportion to the want of ordinary care attributable to that person. The extent of liability in the cases covered by this section is defined by chapter 109 of this title, relating to compensatory relief.
