What If I’m Partially At Fault In A Car Accident
Hey everybody, Andy here. Today’s question comes up a lot when I meet with clients.
The question is I may have been partially at fault for the accident, do I still have a case? Can we still move forward? And the answer is yes. In the state of Florida, the state of Florida is not like other states. We have what’s called comparative negligence, which means that you could have a percentage of it being at fault, so as an example, let’s say that you were 25 at fault. Well then we could still have a case for your injuries and all the things that go along with those injuries for 75 of the injuries. If you are 50 at fault that means we could go ahead with 50. If you’re 80 at fault we still have 20 percent that we can still go after, so that’s not like other states, but the answer to that question is if you are partially at fault we can still move forward.
