In an article from Florida Record, Partner Mark Delegal commented on the Florida Court of Appeals decision that asserted the state’s limits on punitive damages in certain medical malpractice cases don't violate the Florida Constitution’s equal protection guarantees. Mr. Delegal discusses that this may signal a change in the courts, indicating that "future court decisions will better respect the will of the state legislature on medical liability abuses."
"Physicians of our state and hospitals ought to be optimistic about the future jurisprudence in the area of medical professional liability insurance," said Mr. Delegal. "We've had 10 years of bad decisions out of the Supreme Court and then in January 2019 things changed."
