762 So. 2d 1039 (Fla. 5th DCA 2000)

In this wrongful death case arising out of nursing home’s negligence, the trial court dismissed our client’s complaint with prejudice after his prior trial counsel had numerous unsuccessful attempts to amend. Recognizing that trial courts are afforded broad discretion in dismissing complaint with prejudice after numerous attempts to amend, the Fifth District nevertheless reversed finding an abuse of discretion. As a result, our client, now represented by new trial counsel, successfully proceeded with the nursing home neglect case.
