Florida Supreme Court amends standard jury instruction on wrongful death damages to clarify that survivors' pain and suffering damages are to be measured from the decedent's date of injury

On November 2, 2017, in In Re: Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases – Report No. 17-02, No. SC17-514, the Florida Supreme Court authorized an amendment to standard civil jury instruction 502.2, “Wrongful Death Damages: Elements for Estate and Survivors.” The amendment inserts language to clarify that survivors’ pain and suffering damages are to be measured from the decedent’s date of injury (as opposed to the date of death).
