Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit Against the Other Driver Even if I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident?

Yes. Florida has a pure comparative negligence rule. This means that even if you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be eligible for compensation for your injuries. However, the percentage of your blame for the accident may be deducted from any settlement or verdict award you may receive. For example, if you were awarded $100,000 but found to be 15 percent responsible for the accident, you would receive $85,000.
