Understanding “Comparative Fault”

Comparative fault determines the damages you are entitled to receive based on your percentage of fault or negligence for the accident. This results in a reduced amount of your settlement. Florida is a modified comparative negligence state, meaning that a plaintiff is barred from recovery if he is more than 50 percent at fault for his injuries. If you have more questions, we suggest consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney.
