Florida Truck Accident Compensation | Shared Fault
Florida is one of the more lenient of states when it comes to collecting compensation if you have shared fault. When you start the process to determine how much compensation you will get there are two factors that go into determining that amount. The first is how severe your injuries are and what kind of treatments you have needed and will need in the future and how this will affect your life. The second is how much of the accident was your fault. It will be determined as a percentage. If you are 0% at fault, you will get the full amount of compensation awarded to you. If you are 100% at fault, you will be barred from receiving any compensation. From 1-99%, you will have reduced compensation. If you were 20% at fault for the accident, then your compensation award would be reduced by 20% making $100,000 into $80,000.
