Can I still recover compensation if I was partially at fault for the accident?
Yes! Florida is a “comparative fault” state. This means that a victim can, in certain situations, obtain compensation for injuries even if he or she was partially at fault. However, the amount of the compensation will be reduced by the percentage in which the victim was found to be at fault. For example, if a jury awards a victim $100,000 in compensation, but finds the victim to have been 30% at fault, the victim would be awarded $70,000.
