Medical Malpractice Limits Hurt Stay-At-Home Moms, Children & Elderly

In 2003, the Florida Legislature placed limits on medical malpractice damages. As Orlando medical malpractice lawyers, we have found that these limits hurt three groups of patients more than others. Stay-at-home moms, children and the elderly will receive far less for their injury from medical malpractice.

For these groups the limits on medical malpractice damages mean that many will never be fairly compensated for the harm caused by Orlando Regional Medical Center, Florida Hospital Orlando or other health care facilities. Sadly, the hospital and medical associations convinced law-makers that healthcare providers should be treated differently when they recklessly cause injury or death.

Joined by the medical malpractice insurance industry, the hospitals and medical associations have stripped away many rights of Florida patients. No longer can any patient be treated fairly when it comes to assessing the horrible losses caused by medical malpractice. How did this happen? It happened because few people think about this unfairness until medical malpractice hits home.

We must explain to our clients and to those that seek our help, that when it comes to medical malpractice, the field is not level. The medical associations, the hospitals and the malpractice insurers have stacked the deck against the patient and their family. Without a medical malpractice specialist or a medical doctor-lawyer, people may have little chance for a successful outcome.
