Can my recovery be partially reduced if I am found to be partially at-fault for my slip and fall injuries in Florida?
Yes, absolutely. The state of Florida has what we call comparative negligence. What comparative negligence will do is if they find that you were partially at fault for your slip and fall, in this case, then can reduce whatever jury verdict or amount by that percentage. If you got a jury award of $100, but they say you’re 10% responsible, it will get reduced to $90.
