Q: What is pure comparative negligence and what does it mean to my Florida car crash case?

A: Pure comparative negligence is a partial legal defense which reduces the amount of damages that you can recover in a Florida car crash.

Essentially, it means that the compensation for your injuries will be diluted by the percentage in which you are found to be at fault for your Florida car accident.

For example, if you are in an accident with another vehicle and are determined to be 10% at fault, your compensation will be diluted by 10%; therefore, if your case is worth $100,000, you will only receive $90,000. This rule applies at all percentages.

Because determination of fault is something that is subjective, you could end up being blamed for more of a percentage than you actually contributed. This is why it is especially important to work with a Florida accident attorney who is experienced in handling these types of cases.

If you have been injured in a Florida auto accident, contact Fetterman & Associates at 561-845-2510.
