Comparative negligence is an aspect of personal injury law that allows partial blame to be assigned while still providing the possibility of receiving compensation. This law, passed in the 1970s in Florida, awards compensation based on the percentage of responsibility assigned to each party. For example, if it is determined that you are 10% to blame for an accident and another party is 90% responsible, the compensation awarded will be adjusted to 90% of the case’s worth.
