I was partly at-fault for my car accident, but the other driver was legally intoxicated. What happens now?

There’s been a drunk driving accident. The drunk driver was mostly at fault but not completely at fault, say 75% at fault. It’s a question I hear all the time. Well, what happens in that kind of situation? Florida law has something that’s different from most other states. In Florida, if I’m drunk and I cause an accident; if I cause harm and it was 51% or more my fault, then under the law, it’s 100% my fault. Why? Because I was drunk and that’s just a peculiarity that’s in Florida law.
