Medical Malpractice Fight Re-Emerges In Florida

TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – The Florida House on Thursday refueled a debate about whether parents should be able to seek damages for mental pain and suffering when their adult children die because of alleged medical malpractice.

The debate centers on an unusual part of Florida law that involves wrongful-death claims in medical malpractice cases. That part of law bars parents from seeking pain-and-suffering damages when their adult children do not have surviving spouses or children.
