Who is Liable for a Car Accident?
Florida is a “fault state” when it comes to car accident cases. This means that the party responsible for an accident is the one who pays damages, usually through an insurance carrier.
Most accidents, however, are caused by more than one party. Oftentimes the injured party is found partly responsible for an accident. In these cases Florida follows a “pure comparative fault” rule, which means that an injured party is eligible to file a claim even if they are partially at fault but the percentage of responsibility they are found to bear will also be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them.
For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for the accident that caused your injuries your total compensation awarded to you by the court will also be reduced by 20%. Car accident law in Florida can be complex and confusing.
Our team of experienced attorneys will guide you through your car accident claim while fighting for the maximum amount of compensation.
