Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
Our firm has had many years of experience negotiating settlements for our clients in personal injury cases, and taking these cases to trial when the need arises. One of the most important things in life is maintaining the ability provide for your health and to provide for your family. Understandably, most defendants in a personal injury case would love to "wave a magic wand", and turn back the clock to undo the harm that their actions have caused to another. Unfortunately, that is not possible, and those who have been harmed need the ability to take care of themselves so as to not burden their family or society.
The laws in Florida have been crafted in an attempt to make the non-liable injured party whole again. The primary way that is accomplished is by allowing juries to award monetary damages to the injured so that he or she can attempt to put the pieces back together again.
One caveat to that principle is what is referred to as "pure comparative negligence".
In Florida, if liability is at issue in a case, and a jury finds that both parties should bear part of the blame, the jury may assign fault to the parties on a percentage basis. This means that if Defendant X was mostly at fault, but Plaintiff Y did something that added to his/her injuries through no fault of Defendant X, then Plaintiff Y should bear some of the blame; how much of the blame is up to the jury to decide. The jury may then award monetary damages based on those figures. In other words, if a jury found that your actions contributed to your own injuries, then the damages you may be awarded could be reduced based on your "percentage of fault".
