In Florida, there's a doctrine called comparative negligence, and what that basically means is that a jury gets to apportion fault. A jury's going to get to decide what percentage of fault you and the defendant have, and it's just a matter of a jury deciding. It could be 50/50, 30/70; but a jury decides what portion of the fault lies with each of the parties involved in the lawsuit.
