How is fault determined in a Florida auto accident case?
When it comes to automobile accidents in the state of Florida when we're looking at fault, the way the state of Florida works is that it works under a comparative negligence theory. What that means is that a percentage of fault is actually put on all the parties involved in the accident. Parties could be 50/50 fault, 75, 25 at fault. If there are multiple parties, as long as it adds up to 100% that's the way that fault is determined.
