An important distinction is that the set-off is only applied to economic damages.
While not in the opinion, note that the jury found that the plaintiff's comparative negligence was greater than the defendant's and, as such, there was no joint and several liability for the economic damages, this apparently is why the trial court granted a set-off for the entire amount rather than by the Wells ratio formula, see F.
