Can I receive money even if the Florida car accident was my fault?
That’s an interesting question because just because you received a ticket doesn’t necessarily mean that the accident is your fault. In fact the ticket, or who received the ticket, is not even admissible in a proceeding. Just because you were issued the ticket, that does not mean that you were at fault. Remember, if you were some part at fault, you could possibly recover damages under the pure comparative negligent statute which is what we have here in Florida. For instance, if you were 90% at fault in a car accident and you sustained damages of $10,000, than that $10,000 would be reduced down by that 90% of comparative negligence and you could possibly still recover that $1,000.
