Return to FAQ Videos


Negligence in the State of Florida is defined as the failure to use reasonable care. For example, everybody that’s driving a motor vehicle in the State of Florida has to use reasonable care in the operation of their motor vehicle. If someone runs through a red light looking down at their cell phone, they have failed to use reasonable care in the operation of that motor vehicle and they are negligent.
