Auto Accident Attorney in Tampa, Florida, for Cases Involving Comparative Negligence

If you’ve been hurt in an auto accident, an attorney from Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa can improve your chances of obtaining financial compensation. Even if you were partially at fault, you should nonetheless be entitled to receive money to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and auto repair. In Florida, there is a legal concept known as “comparative negligence” that governs how cases like this are handled. Say there is an auto accident involving two drivers, Driver A and Driver B, both of whom caused the accident. If it is determined that Driver B was 25 percent at fault, the amount of his compensation will be reduced by 25 percent. So, although you think you may have contributed to the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation. An auto accident attorney from our firm will be happy to explain more.

In addition to auto accidents, the types of cases we handle include:

  • Boating accidents
