Florida recently passed a law that applied caps to intangible damages that are part of a medical malpractice case. It uses a complex sliding scale that, based on the circumstances of the case, will cap damages from $500,000 to $1,500,000. The caps are not retroactive, and currently they are being constitutionally challenged in the state’s court system.
