Can my recovery be partially reduced if I am found to be partially at fault for my slip and fall injuries in Florida? | Metnick, Levy & Dyson | Let Us Be Your Solution | 1-(800) MYATTORNEY | | 15300 Jog Road, Suite 103, Delray Beach, Florida 33446 | (561)498-9979 Yes, it may. Florida has what's known as a comparative fault state, which means if you're found responsible partially for your accident, let's say, 50% for the accident, and the defendant is also found 50% at fault for the accident. Then your damages will be divided in half. If a jury awards you $100,000, and you're found 50% at fault for the accident, your net recovery will be $50,000.
