Legally Pink Law, we have trial-experienced attorneys with a history of winning enviable
There are multiple considerations for limits on damages. The first category
relates to an injured patient’s compensation for medical costs and
lost wages. Damages also include compensation for pain and suffering,
and Florida places a cap on this non-economic damage. Florida malpractice
settlements can include up to $1 million for pain and suffering plus economic
damages for medical costs and lost wages.
It is possible that a Florida malpractice case can also include punitive
damages, which are paid to punish wrongdoing on the part of the medical
provider. Punitive damages are only added if the patient can prove the
provider intended to cause serious harm.
