What are the consequences if I am partially to blame for my injuries caused by another person?


Video Transcription

If you are injured in the state of Florida due to the negligence of someone else, however you are partially to blame for that accident, that is what we called comparative negligence. A certain percentage will be assigned to your negligence in the action, and that percentage of damages you will not be able to recover any type of case against the other person. Say for example, it is a auto accident where you are considered to be 40% at fault and your damages are $10,000. You would be prohibited from recovering $4,000 of those damages, but you could still go after the other driver for the remaining $6,000.
