Lawyers representing medical malpractice victims in Florida are challenging a law that they believe is violating the privacy rights of patients.
Lawyers in Escambia County recently demanded that the Supreme Court dispute the “ex parte communications” law. The 2013 law supported by medical practitioner groups allows attorneys of doctors facing lawsuits to get other medical information about their patients from their previous doctors even without their consent. The information can be obtained by defense lawyers even without the knowledge of the attorney representing the patient in filing medical malpractice claim. The appeals court in July issued a ruling in favor of the law.
