Car accident liability is determined by comparative negligence in Florida. That means whoever is at fault, to whatever degree they played a role, is liable for the portion that they contributed to the accident.
For instance, if a judge were to determine that Driver One was 80 percent to blame and Driver Two is 20 percent to blame, then Driver One is 80 percent liable for any losses Driver Two experiences and Driver Two is 20 percent liable for any losses Driver One experiences.
The degree of fault does not play a role in determining whether someone can recover damages in an accident. Even if someone is 95 percent at fault, they can recover five percent of damages from the other driver who was liable for their portion of the accident.
