Florida law recognizes a “comparative negligence theory,” which means that the plaintiff can still recover some compensation even if he or she is found to be partially at fault for the accident. The plaintiff’s recovery will be reduced by his or her percentage of fault.

Filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit quickly is important, because under Florida law, there are statutes of limitation that dictate how long a person has to file a lawsuit for personal injury claims, resulting in compensation. If that limit of time passes, the person who may have been injured no longer has any legal right to file any sort of claim. This is why you need to retain a knowledgeable Florida personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible after an accident is imperative.
Apparently, personal injury claims in many states are on the rise because cities across America are experiencing a building boom, a rebound in manufacturing and a residential renaissance. And the dramatic increase in population density has directly affected the number of local Boca Raton personal injury cases and accidents.
