The simple answer to this question is, yes. Florida subscribes to what is called a pure comparative negligence system in dealing with tort claims. This means that if you were partially at fault for an accident, you are still entitled to recover the damages that are attributed to the negligence of others. Determining how much fault will be attributed to each party is very difficult and will be left up to the jury if your case goes to trial. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to advise you on whether or not your claim is likely to succeed. Contact the Dolman Law Group, today for advice on your claim.
