Accidents can have devastating consequences for the victim, as well as his or her family and friends. The physical and emotional pain and suffering, long hospital stays, medical expenses, and significant time off from work can take a huge toll on everyone involved. For many families, the steep medical bills and lost earnings that result from an accident can put them in a desperate financial situation. Sometimes, as in the case of paralysis, the victim's quality of life is affected for the rest of his or her life.
In every accident claim, the question of fault is crucial because it affects how much compensation the plaintiff can obtain. Accidents can have any number of causes, and sometimes both parties contribute to their occurrence. Florida law recognizes a comparative negligence theory, which means that the plaintiff can still recover some compensation even if he or she is found to be partially at fault for the accident. The plaintiff's recovery will be reduced by his or her percentage of fault. For example, even if the plaintiff was 60 percent at fault for an accident, she can still recover 40 percent of the damages she would have received if she had not been at fault at all.
