Florida Bill Protects Employers from Lawsuits

May 1, 2008 –ORLANDO–Florida legislators on Wednesday approved a bill making it easier for businesses that deploy automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to get immunity from lawsuits. The measure (SB 564) ensures that an employer who acquires a defibrillator is protected from lawsuits even if it did not provide appropriate training to employees, as long as the device is equipped with audible or visual instructions. The subject of defibrillator immunity gained prominence following the death late last year of a tourist who suffered a heart attack while riding Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Both the House and Senate approved the bill unanimously, and it now heads to Gov. Charlie Crist.
