Can I receive damages for pain and suffering in a Florida medical malpractice case?

Yes, just like in any other case in Florida, motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall, what have you, in a medical malpractice case, the injured plaintiff can receive damages for pain and suffering. The Florida Supreme Court recently declared a statute that limited that pain and suffering claim to be unconstitutional, so there is no statutory cap on pain and suffering damages in Florida at the present time.
