A Florida court has ruled that caps on certain damages in medical malpractice lawsuits do not apply in personal injury cases.
In 2003 the Florida Legislature limited non-economic damages to $500 thousand but in 2014 the 4th District Court of Appeal ruled that the limitation could not apply to wrongful death settlements. Last week a Florida District Court ruled that the limitation does not apply to personal injury medical malpractice lawsuits.
The decision concerns a case where a woman sued the North Broward Hospital District over carpel tunnel syndrome and was awarded $4.7 million.
The case is expected to be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.
