What if I’m partially at fault for my accident?

Florida follows a comparative negligence system, which means if you are found to be partially at fault for your accident, then the property owner’s liability may be reduced by the percentage of fault you are assigned.

For example: You file a slip and fall claim, but you’re ultimately found to be 25 percent at fault because you were texting and looking down at your phone when the accident occurred. Any compensation you’re awarded would be reduced by 25 percent. That means if you were awarded $100,000 in damages, your compensation would be reduced by 25 percent to $75,000.

How much does a Tampa premises liability lawyer cost?

At Armando Personal Injury Law, we represent our clients on a contingency fee basis. For awards up to $1 million, we typically charge 33.3 percent if we make a recovery for you prior to filing a lawsuit and 40 percent if the recovery is made after we file a lawsuit. We charge 30 percent of any award between $1-2 million and 20 percent of any award over $2 million.
