Recovering Compensation After a Pedestrian Accident
Florida is a state that follows the rules of pure comparative negligence. What that means is that, even if the liable party’s insurance company pins some of the blame on you, you can still receive compensation. However, with shared fault means you have a reduced award. If you have been awarded $100,000 in damages, but you have been deemed 20% at fault for your part in causing the accident – say you were not in a crosswalk when you were hit – then your award will be reduced to $80,000. We will do everything we can to keep you from getting blamed for the accident.
