When someone you love, work with or are otherwise acquainted is injured in a terrible car accident, a workplace mishap or through violent crime, it is often difficult to determine what to say or do to help him or her recover. For those who have suffered brain injuries, life may be forever changed, and achieving as full a recovery as possible can be extremely challenging. In Florida and beyond, thousands of people suffer traumatic brain injuries every year, many of which were the result of others' negligence.
If an accident occurs rarely is it ever easy to point a finger and say that one party was 100% at fault for the accident, usually both parties are at fault to different extents. In 1973 Florida adopted a comparative negligence statue that allowed parties to be held partially liable.
