What if I was partially at-fault for the Florida accident because I was walking outside of a crosswalk or running across the street?
As a pedestrian, if you’re partly at fault for an accident you can still collect if the driver was doing anything negligently. They’ll just compare that fault to your fault and it’ll really be done on a percentage basis. If you were 50% at fault, then you’ll only recover 50% of the damages. If you were 60% at fault, you can still recover 40% of the damages. So just because you were partially at fault doesn’t mean you don’t have a claim because you can still bring one against the other negligent party.
