What if the accident was partially my fault?

 

A: Florida is what is called a "pure comparative negligence" state. This means that whatever percentage of fault a jury finds is attributable to you reduces your claim by that percentage of fault. For example, if your claim were worth $1,000.00 and the jury found you half at fault, you would only be entitled to compensation in the amount $500.00 (half of the value of the total claim). However, your being partially at fault does not bar or eliminate your right to make a claim.
