In Title XLV Torts Section 766.101, non-economic damages from medical malpractice by a practitioner is limited to $500,000 and damages caused by a non-practitioner are limited to $750,000. In the case of wrongful death or catastrophic injury, damages are limited to $1 million and $1.5 million respectively.
