What Does It Mean That Florida Is A Comparative Negligence State?
Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means as the plaintiff you recover the proportion of damages equal to the defendant’s liability. Even if you were partly at fault for the crash, you still can recover compensation. So, if the jury finds that the defendant was 80% responsible for the accident and you were 20% responsible, the damages awarded will be reduced by 20%.
Your Options When The Negligent Driver Was Not Insured
Don’t worry if the driver who injured you was uninsured or lacked enough collision insurance to cover your damages. There are other options. For example, if your own coverage includes uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, we can pursue a claim on your policy.
