What Are the Comparative Fault Laws in Florida?

Negligent security accident claims in Florida fall under comparative negligence laws. This means that an award for compensation will be reduced in accordance with the percentage of the victim’s liability.

For example, if the victim is shown to have contributed 40% to their injuries, and their damages total $100,000, they will only be entitled to $60,000 in compensation. It is crucial to work with a skilled lawyer who can prove you were not responsible in any way for your injuries, so that you can recover the maximum amount of compensation.

Proving a Negligent Security Claim

In a negligent security claim, the plaintiff must prove three elements in order to win the case:

  • The property owner had a duty of care to ensure basic security measures were in place
  • The victim’s injuries were both foreseeable and directly caused by the inadequate security
  • The victim suffered damages – whether physical, emotional, or financial in nature

What Is the Negligent Security Statute of Limitations?

In Florida, an individual must file a negligent security claim within four years of the date of the injury. If the victim died due to inadequate security on another’s property, the decedent’s family can file a wrongful death claim within two years of the date of death. If the deadline is not met, the claim will not be accepted.
