Sovereign Immunity Limits have been Increased by 2010 Florida Legislature ♦ Awaits Governor Charlie Crist’s signature

The Florida Legislature increased the limits of liability from $100,000 per person/$200,000 per incident, to $200,000/$300,000 per incident. For nearly thirty years the limits were set at $100,000/$200,000. This limit was the maximum amount government entities can be forced to pay to victims in personal injury cases. 
However, for any injured victim to receive more than the sovereign immunity limit in a particular case, a “Claims Bill” for that individual must be passed. A “Claims Bill” is a law. To become law, it requires sponsors, debate, legislative approval, and the Governor’s signature. The process is expensive and time consuming, with the goal rarely achieved.
