Florida Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations
Florida has a time limit of two years to file a claim for medical malpractice or you may lose your right to compensation, this is referred to as the statute of limitations. Florida allows several exceptions to this two year rule, the first being the discovery rule. If an injury is not discovered at the time of injury you have two years from the date of discovery or date the injury should have reasonably been discovered to file a claim. There is a four year deadline from the time of the injury to file a claim no matter when the injury was discovered.
The second exception is if the injury victim was under the age of eight at the time of injury. In this case you have until the child's eighth birthday to file a claim. The last exception is if the injury was intentionally hidden from you by way of some sort of fraud. In this situation you have two years from the date of discovery or date the injury should have been reasonably discovered with an overarching cap of seven years to file a claim no matter when the injury was discovered.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Medical Malpractice Case?
There are three main categories of damages or compensation, an injury victim can pursue after suffering an injury which is economic, non-economic, and punitive. Economic damages compensate for the financial losses associated with an injury such as medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work.
Non-economic damages, as the name suggests, compensates for the abstract losses and injury victim faces, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. Since non-economic damages compensate for losses intangible by nature, they are also called general damages. Florida does place a cap or limit on the amount of non-economic damages that can be awarded. An experienced attorney from our firm can let you know how theses laws may affect your case.
The last category, punitive damages, is different from economic and non-economic damages in that their main purpose is to punish the defendant. As such, punitive damages as not often awarded and are usually reserved for cases where the negligent party knew their actions would cause harm but did them anyway.
