Florida Governor Rick Scott recently signed legislation making a significant chan Rick Scottge to the potential liability of individuals providing design professional services in the state. The new law, which takes effect July 1, 2013, will enable a business entity to contractually limit the liability of its individual professionals to the extent of that professional’s scope of work performed under the contract. In other words, the individual design professional can now immunize himself for liability in design or project administration. The design firm remains potentially liable.

We have all seen projects where a design principle is bent a little or a construction technique is altered slightly for the sake of speed or cost. Often times, the attitude is “no harm, no foul”. But consider the other side of the situation and ask yourself what happens when there is harm. A recent case in Southern California is worth noting in that regard.
