Comparative Negligence

Florida’s comparative negligence law means that you will be compensated for any amount of your own fault. If you are found to be 10% at fault for a car accident, the 10 percent will be subtracted from your total damages. This means that you will only get 90 percent of your damages. It is crucial to minimize or eliminate any negligence the other party attempts to place on you.

Damages in a Personal Injury Claim

Medical care costs are rising rapidly. According to CNBC News, Americans now spend twice as much as they did in the 1980s on healthcare (even after inflation adjustments). According to Kelly Blue Book, new cars are more expensive than ever. The average car costs well over $38,000. Personal injury claims can also include property and medical bills. The amount you get depends on the extent of your damages, and the ability of the at-fault party to pay (the value of their insurance policy), as well as other factors such as comparative negligence. You can seek damages by filing a personal injury suit for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical costs projections
  • Lost Local Workers
  • Disabilities can lead to a loss of earning capacity
  • The pain and suffering of others.
  • The loss of joy in life
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Hospitalization or disability can result in housekeeping costs
  • Children’s care costs due to hospitalization or disability
