Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed House Bill 837, “Civil Remedies,” into law In March 2023 and the bill contains significant tort reform that impacts civil litigation in Florida. For many Florida lawyers with basic legal information on their website, this means an update to your law firm website content is necessary.

Among the changes is the modification of Florida’s comparative negligence standard from a “pure” comparative negligence standard to a “modified” comparative negligence standard, the reduction of the statute of limitations for general negligence claims from four years to two years, and changes in the admissibility of evidence in past and future medical expenses. The bill also introduces a new duty of good faith for insureds and claimants in bad faith actions in Florida.
