Florida Car Accident Lawyers
Representing Injured Auto Accident Victims
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, it’s important that you understand and work to protect your rights. Read more about your rights regarding Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claims.
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. At Michles & Booth, we believe that all car accident victims, regardless of the circumstances, should be afforded the justice and rightful recovery they deserve. Our Florida car accident lawyers can discuss your legal options based on your unique situation and build a case aimed at securing the maximum compensation you deserve.
The first step in your recovery is reaching out to an attorney at our firm for a free, confidential consultation. Call (800) 848-6168 or contact us online to get started. We have offices located in Pensacola, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, and Tampa.
Pure Comparative Negligence in Florida
As previously mentioned, Florida follows the rule of pure comparative negligence. 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.
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.
Our Florida car accident lawyers understand the complex nuances involved in car accident claims. In every case, we utilize the expertise of our in-house investigators and board-certified physician to support our clients’ cases.
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
Our award-winning legal team is prepared to guide you through each stage of the legal process. While we strive for swift, favorable settlements for our clients, we are also prepared to serve as your dedicated advocate at trial.
