The minimum and maximum amount of compensation for medical malpractice can differ from one state to another. In Florida, there are no longer caps on the amount a defendant is required to pay and the amount a plaintiff can receive from a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The amount that you can recover for your injuries depends very much on the injuries you have suffered and the extent of damages created by medical negligence or other situations, which can make the object of a medical malpractice case.
In cases involving hospitals and emergency care providers, damage limitations rules apply. You can read more about the basic laws for Florida Medical Malpractice Damage Caps at Fla. Stat. Ann. 766.118.
