Some physicians and hospitals provide patients with a form requiring arbitration for any medical malpractice claims, although the state of Florida does not mandate this alternative dispute forum. If a party refuses to accept a defendant's offer to arbitrate, the recovery allowable by law will be limited to economic damages (but only 80 percent of lost wages) plus no more than $350,000 in noneconomic damages. Arbitration agreements are sometimes subject to legal challenge. Although our attorneys are experienced in arbitration proceedings, in some instances attorney Mitchell L. Feldman and the law firm of Feldman Law Group PA may be able to bypass the arbitration clause. Call or email us about your case and we will set up a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
