Doctor's plea for Malpractice Cap dies in Court
The Florida Supreme court has allowed lawyers in Florida to have their clients waive the constitutional limits on fees.
TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Supreme Court has handed a final defeat to doctors who fought for years to place stringent caps on attorney fees in medical malpractice cases.
The high court ruling late last week finalizes an earlier decision that lets patients waive a constitutional limit on legal fees in medical malpractice cases that voters approved two years ago.
In response, the state's largest medical group announced late last week it would start arming doctors with their own forms for patients to sign that would limit doctors' legal risk if they're sued.
