Understanding How Fault is Determined in Florida
Some people have the false impression that if they were the victims of an accident, then they are entitled to the total amount of a claim. However, Florida is a comparative fault state. That means that the court will determine what percentage of the accident was each party’s fault and distribute damages accordingly.
Say, for example, that you were riding against the traffic flow and did not stop at a stop sign before you were struck by a vehicle. The court might grant your claim, but they also determine that you had 50% responsibility for the accident. In this case, your awarded claim might be reduced by half to be commensurate with your amount of fault in the event.
