Modified comparative negligence is an aspect of personal injury law in Florida that allows partial blame to be assigned while still providing the possibility of receiving compensation.
In 2023, Florida passed HB 837, which moved the state to a modified comparative negligence system from a pure comparative negligence one. Under the new system, a victim cannot recover damages if they are found to be responsible for more than 50% of them.
If you have been injured by another party’s negligence, you should consider enlisting the help of a Florida accident lawyer in defending your rights to compensation. Contact the experienced legal team of Winston Law Firm, by calling (954) 475-9666 today.
