In our last installment on the basics of Florida medical malpractice, today we consider the limits on financial compensation. At Legally Pink Law, we have trial-experienced attorneys with a history of winning enviable client settlements.
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.
