Answer:

Determining Fault After a Truck AccidentTrucking cases are unique cases. Many times, we come across a fact pattern where it looks like our own client might bear some responsibility. Does the client still have a case? The answer is yes. There are certain exceptions to that, but generally speaking, yes.

Here’s why. Florida is what is known as a comparative negligence state, which means that for example, if we go to court and try your case and a jury awards you some money, but they say, for example, you were 50% at fault, the judge will reduce that verdict by 50%. You still are award something, so don’t shy away from your case simply because you think you may be at fault.
