Without a doubt, one of the most popular things to do in Florida Ridge is to soak up the sun. The proximity to several bodies of water makes a day on the beach incredibly attractive.

If you’d prefer to spend your day learning about all those things you’ve been curious about, the area is also ripe with museums. McLarty Treasure Museum, St. Lucie County Museum, and Mel Fisher’s Treasure Museum are just a few to tantalize your brain cells. In truth, there is something for everyone in this lovely area of the Treasure Coast.

Can I Sue If I Was Partially At Fault?
The short answer to this frequently asked question is: yes. We often hear from injury victims who have been misinformed about Florida’s comparative negligence law. Florida law does not say that you cannot sue or seek compensation if you were partially at fault. It merely says that your award will be reduced. Let’s take a look at a brief example.
You were involved in a car accident. You changed into an adjacent lane but then slammed on your brakes, so the vehicle behind you didn’t have enough time to stop, and a crash ensued. You sue and win in court, but you are found to be 20% at fault and the other driver 80% at fault. Your award will be reduced by 20% (or the percentage you were found to be at fault).
This, of course, is just a simple example but is how comparative negligence works in the state of Florida. Your personal injury attorney can provide you with more detailed information based upon the unique circumstances of your case. The comparative negligence rule by no means negates your right to file a suit seeking compensation for the damages you incurred as the result of your accident.
Also, just because you were alleged to have contributed cause to the accident doesn’t make it so. An attorney can help you investigate the full details of the matter and determine the appropriate way to assign fault.

You are not obligated to accept any settlement offer. This is so important to remember! You should never let yourself be pressured into accepting an offer that is too low or seems generally unfair. It almost always pays to first consult with an experienced personal injury attorney, especially when that consultation won’t cost you a cent. Speaking with an attorney allows you to understand the full extent of your damages and what techniques can allow you to seek this amount from insurers.
