What Are Florida’s Auto Accident Laws?
Being involved in a car accident—no matter how minor or major—is a frightening experience. When an accident leaves you injured and/or dealing with significant damage to your vehicle, you must understand and work to protect your rights. Additionally, in the state of Florida, you only have four years from the date of the accident to bring a claim. This is why contacting a law firm with experienced Florida car accident lawyers is so important for your case. Read more about your rights regarding Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claims.

How Do Comparative Negligence Laws Work in Florida?
Understanding Pure Comparative Negligence in FL
Under Florida’s pure comparative negligence rule, you may seek compensation for your damages following a car accident even if you were partially at fault for the accident. This means that you do not need to prove that the other driver or another party was completely at fault for the accident that left you injured. Instead, you only need to prove that the other person was at least partially at fault.
What Happens If I Am Partially at Fault for the Accident?
If, however, you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your total recovery will be reduced by the percentage for which you are deemed liable. For example, if a jury finds you 20% at fault for an accident that left you with $10,000 in damages, you will only be able to recover 80% of that settlement/verdict, or $8,000.
We can help you seek compensation for all of your damages following your car accident, including but not limited to:
- All medical expenses you incurred as a result of the accident
- Lost wages/income, including future lost earnings
- Reduced or lost earning capacity (disability)
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and/or trauma
- Property damage/vehicle repairs
