Personal Injury Law Firm in Fort Lauderdale
An injury in an auto accident or slip-and-fall can have a devastating impact not only on the injured individual, but also their friends and family. Beyond the great physical pain they are experiencing, injured individuals may also be dealing with large medical bills and potentially large future medical bills, long stays in the hospital, emotional pain and suffering, and significant lost time from work. Taken together, these stresses can eventually take a large toll on those persons involved. Often, the incredibly expensive medical bills coupled with lost earnings can place injured individuals and their families in desperate financial straits. In some instances, the injured individual’s quality of life may be permanently impacted.
At times like these, the question of liability or fault becomes utterly crucial as it will ultimately determine what compensation an injured plaintiff may obtain. Obviously, there are many ways that an accident can occur and sometimes, the question of liability may become complex if multiple parties are found to have contributed to the occurrence of the accident. In Florida, the law recognizes the theory of “comparative negligence.”
The term “comparative negligence” stands for the proposition that a plaintiff can still recover some compensation even when the injured individual is found to be partially at fault for the accident. In these cases, the plaintiff’s recovery will be reduced by his or her percentage of fault for the occurrence. Thus, even if the plaintiff is thirty percent (30%) at fault for an accident, that injured individual may still recover 70% of the damages they would have received if they had not been at fault at all.
