Florida Supreme Court Deems Caps Unconstitutional

The Florida Supreme Court ruled the caps presented to injured patients is unconstitutional.

“The caps on noneconomic damages … arbitrarily reduce damage awards for plaintiffs who suffer the most drastic injuries,” the court said.

As a result of a challenge in a recent injury case from Broward County, the Florida Supreme Court has ruled the caps limiting recoverable damages against healthcare providers in medical negligence cases unconstitutional. The caps were first enacted by the Florida Legislature in 2003.
