New Malpractice Bill to Go Before Florida Senate

A new measure filed in the Florida senate would change the way malpractice lawsuits are handled in the state.

Introduced by Republican John Thrasher out of Jacksonville, the bill would put the burden on the plaintiff to establish that the doctor had committed medical malpractice. It would also require the Department of Health to issue an emergency order suspending the license of any doctor who does not compensate the state or agree into a repayment agreement.
