The bill known as S.B 334 could raise personal injury damage awards for dominant attorneys. This bill would enlarge prejudgment interest for dominant plaintiffs mandatory in all civil suits and even including wrongful death claims and personal injury suits. If you have been injured in an accident, call a personal injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale.
This bill was favored at The Senate Rules Committee where it was voted 10-1 and will be passed to the Senate floor. As the law currently stands, a plaintiff does not recover prejudgment interest on damages for wrongful death and personal injury cases. Before final judgment, damages in these cases can not be accurately calculated according to an analysis of the bill. With every bill that is brought to legislation for approval, there are those that are in opposition to each one. The defense bar argues that it will lead to inflated settlements. In addition to this, the plaintiff would also be able to recover interest on any attorney fees or costs awarded in the final judgment.
