Jury says Florida hotel shares some responsibility in fatal crash

When a wrongful death claim is filed against several parties, one of the duties of a jury is to assign a percentage of liability, if any, to each defendant. The amount of any award determined by the jury is then split among the defendants according to those percentages. For example, a jury recently decided that a Florida hotel was partially responsible for a fatal crash that occurred on March 18, 2012. The hotel's liability was determined to be 15 percent; when translated into a dollar amount, the hotel's portion of the $24 million award is approximately $3.6 million. The remaining 85 percent of the award was assessed against the driver.
