Q. “What if I’m partially responsible for what happened, and I’m told I’m negligent too, does this mean I can’t recover for my injuries in an accident, when the other guy was more at fault?” A. Florida trial lawyer John M. Castellano tells you straight:

“Most people in Ft. Lauderdale know me as a Florida criminal defense lawyer and yet I thankfully get the opportunity to help families all the time in other types of cases, especially Florida wrongful death and Florida auto accident and personal injury cases.” Florida wrongful death lawyer John Castellano

“Regardless of what area of the law we tend to focus on and develop a reputation in, All Florida lawyers routinely answer questions and help people every week on a myriad of unrelated issues related to Florida auto accident cases and Florida personal injury and wrongful death cases, and especially this SAME issue you raised, answering this commonly-asked question as often as the accidents themselves!”

“Florida is what the laws and the courts call a “comparative negligence” State, meaning that you can STILL recover damages and receive compensation for an auto accident and your resultant injuries, despite your own negligence *IF the other driver’s fault or negligence was “comparatively” worse than your own; and so the good news is, you’re not without help, since you were only “comparatively” negligent, meaning you were only partially responsible, as you said, but not quite as responsible as the other driver for the accident and your resultant injuries.” — Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyer John Castellano
