New laws in Florida hurt medical malpractice victims

The state of Florida recently passed a pair of laws that hurt patients who have medical malpractice claims. Under one of the new laws, when a patient is hurt by a physician that doctor's lawyer can go out and talk to the patient's other doctors without first obtaining the permission of the patient. Many people view this as an invasion of privacy since, under most circumstances, nobody is permitted to talk to a patient's physician without the patient's permission. The new law in Florida changes that and the only limitation is that the conversations cannot take place after the patient has filed a formal lawsuit.
