Florida sovereign immunity limits increase in 2011

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. 

 If you, or someone you know, have been injured as the result of negligence, medical malpractice or a dangerous or defective product, contact me at (305) 358-3109 or mmazzarella@hannonboyers.com today for a free evaluation of your claim.
