Florida places limits the amount a government entity can pay personal injury victims. Currently, § 768.28, Fla. Stat. sets the maximum recovery at $100,000 per person or $200,000 per incident. Effective October 11, 2011, however, the legislature has increased these limits to $200,000 per person or $300,000 per incident. Although this is a step in the right direction, these are still arbitrary limits that rob an injured individual of their right to full recovery.
