Rick Scott to Sign Bill Limiting Experts in Medical Malpractice Cases

Florida Governor Rick Scott has until June 12 to sign a number of bills presented to him by the legislature, including SB 1792, which diminishes significantly the number of available expert witnesses who may testify in medical malpractice lawsuits. While the change may not seem all that significant at first glance, the statute in its current form already places strict requirements on potential experts. More important, this is is yet another attempt the Florida legislature or Governor Scott to diminish the rights of victims of medical malpractice and other forms of negligence.
