Collateral Source Rule

Florida has held that the court must reduce a claimant's damages by the amounts paid to the claimant from collateral sources. However, the court must also receive evidence pertaining to the cost of such benefits to the claimant as an offset to the reduction. No reduction shall apply for any collateral sources to which a right of subrogation exists.
