What is Comparative Negligence?
In order to receive compensation for an injury, the plaintiff or their Wesley Chapel injury lawyer must prove that the defendant’s negligence caused the accident. In addition, Florida is a comparative negligence state, meaning that the victim is still entitled to some compensation even if they were partially at-fault. However, the amount of compensation is reduced based on the percentage of the victim’s fault, assigned by a judge or jury. For example, if someone injured in a car accident is deemed 25 percent responsible for the accident and suffered $1,000,000 in damages, the other at-fault party, at 75 percent responsible, may be required to pay only $750,000, instead of the full amount.
Before filing a lawsuit, victims of negligence-related accidents often decide to try pursuing an informal settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company to receive possible damages. However, one of the most difficult aspects of a personal injury case is dealing with those insurance companies, whose goal it is to pay out the least amount of money possible. With medical bills piling up, no income, and a painful injury to recover from, having the energy to haggle with a stubborn insurer, while trying to understand the legal process, can seem impossible.
A Wesley Chapel personal injury attorney can handle this aspect of the claim from the very beginning, filling out the proper paperwork, evaluating the true value of a claim, and entering into back-and-forth negotiations if necessary. An experienced personal injury attorney in Wesley Chapel will also know when to stop settlement negotiations with an insurance company that will not budge, and pursue a lawsuit to make sure you get the damages that you are deserved.
