Catastrophic injuries have the potential to drastically change the life trajectory of an injured victim and their family.
Liability in Florida Catastrophic Injury Claims
Liability in most catastrophic injury lawsuits is not limited to a single defendant. The jury is allowed discretion to determine all parties liable for a plaintiff’s injuries under the 2018 Florida Statute § 768.81. Each responsible party gets assigned a part of the liability. Compensation will be reduced proportionately by the percentage of liability of a plaintiff.
