WHAT IF I AM PARTIALLY AT FAULT FOR AN ACCIDENT?
Several clients usually ask our personal injury attorneys whether they would be able to get compensation if they were partially at fault for the accident. The response is yes, depending on the extent of the liability. The rules of Comparative Negligence are followed in Florida. It means that under the laws regulating accidents in Florida, you can still recover if you were partially at fault in an accident; however, the portion the jury decides was your fault might minimize your recovery. It does not mean that you will not be able to recover anything. For example, if you were 10% at fault in Florida, the total damages you would recover is reduced by 10%.
Advocates USA can fight on your behalf to reduce the percentage of fault assigned to you and ensure you move forward with as much compensation as possible. For a free evaluation, call our personal injury attorneys at 1-800-872-4878 or fill out our contact form.
CALCULATING THE WORTH OF A PERSONAL INJURY CASE
The assessment of damages following an accident is not easy for a victim. You’re not just concentrating on recovery, but you’re also trying to deal with insurance adjusters, car mechanics, doctor appointments, bills, and missing work. Many Law firms offer free calculators that claim to get you into a settlement’s box. Still, those are very imprecise and do not take into consideration comparative negligence, punitive, and economic and non-economic damages, which may affect what the case is worth.
With years of experience in handling such cases successfully, Advocates USA will be able to provide you with an estimated amount based on the different variables presented.
