Can Talking On A Cell Phone While Driving Hurt My Personal Injury Case Even Though I Was Not At Fault For The Accident?

A: Since Florida is a comparative negligence state, every personal injury claim is awarded based on what percentage of liability both parties had in the Florida car accident.Although you may believe the other driver was at fault, the other driver’s insurance company and attorney will look for ways to blame you for a percentage of the accident.

Although it is not illegal to talk on a cell phone in Florida while driving, it is considered distracted driving and the other side may use that to their advantage.In order to get as much as possible out of your claim, you will need a skilled South Florida personal injury lawyer to help you fight for your rights to recovery.
