Florida is what we call a comparative fault state, which means that at a trial, the jury can apportion the fault between the people involved in the accident. So even if you are partially responsible for causing the accident, the jury can still hold the other driver accountable for the harms and losses that they were responsible for causing. So after a wreck, if the at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster calls you, I would recommend not talking to that adjuster because they’re not there to help, they’re there to hurt your case. That’s their job. Their job is to adjust the case, meaning adjust the value downward. And so, I would not talk with the at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster. I would call a lawyer and let the lawyer who has the experience at handling this day in and day out represent you and handle the case to put your mind at ease.
