There are also state laws that could impact your settlement or verdict amount. The first is Florida’s comparative fault law, found in Florida Statutes § 768.81. The statute states that the court will access each party’s degree of fault and assign a percentage. Any awards you win will be reduced by this percentage. For example, if you win $100,000, but the court finds you 20 percent liable for your injuries, you receive $80,000.
Another law that may affect your case is Florida Statutes § 768.28. This law waives the state’s right to sovereign immunity. So, if your accident occurred on government property, you can sue the government entity for negligence. However, the statute caps damages you can receive at $200,000. There is a cap of $300,000 for claims against multiple entities.
