Comparative Negligence Claims

Were you involved in an accident, and the police said you were at-fault for the accident, but you don’t believe that to be true? Or maybe the insurance company told you that you were found to be a percentage at fault for the accident, such as 40%? You may still be able to pursue a claim. New tort reform was passed in March of 2023 in Florida, which changed Florida’s negligence law to a modified comparative negligence. Under modified comparative negligence, you can make a claim for your damages and injuries, as long as you are not more than 50% at-fault for the accident. So, if you are 51% at-fault, you would not be able to recover for damages or injuries from the insurance companies. But who determines how at-fault you are?

If you were found to be at-fault by the cop, but know that you were not at-fault, or at least not more than 50% at fault, let the Mantia Law Firm help you fight this decision. What many people do not realize, is that regardless of what the police say, the insurance companies do their own investigations as to what happened in the accident. During these investigations, insurance companies look at information such as the crash report, photos of the scene of the accident, location of damages, statements from witnesses, and statements from the parties involved, among many other things. Just because the police believed you were at-fault for an accident, doesn’t mean the insurance company will. Crash reports can often have inaccurate information, or even be missing vital information.

The Mantia Law Firm will assist you through this process to make sure all the evidence and facts necessary to fight liability are brought to the insurance company’s attention. Additionally, the Mantia Law Firm will not take a fee if you do not receive a settlement from your case. You have nothing to lose, let the Mantia Law Firm assist you with your comparative case today.
