Question:

What if the individual was partially at fault in causing their own death?

Answer:

We recently had a very, very bad motorcycle accident case in Tampa. The client’s family, in this case, were concerned because their family member was partially at fault for the accident. Unfortunately, this gentleman had been driving over the speed limit. They asked if they could still bring a claim. The answer in that particular case was yes. The reason why is because the other vehicle that was involved in the accident – not the motorcycle – was also determined to be at fault. Partial Fault in a Wrongful Death Case
