    They should have had 10 or 100 times as many agents out there marching. AOB abuse is terrible and disgusting!

      Perhaps if it was better advertised, more agents would have shown up. Also, why weren”t the insurance company personnel there too?

    I do not have a dog in this fight but will add my two cents. There is money to be made by stalling this or by diluting any change by passing legislation that puts a band aid on this. It is precisely because plaintiffs attorneys and contractors have been cashing in on this that nothing has been done. Consumer lobbies are not as well funded to match the contributions to campaigns etc to move the needle on this. Keeping the spotlight on these cockroaches is the only way to get rid of them. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation is on the side of the consumer and if anyone can tell abuse from business as usual, they ought to know. time to STOP THE ABUSE!

    Stush is right. Follow the money. Take a look at who benefits and who pays from the status quo, and in a corrupt environment such as Florida, then you’ll see what an uphill battle this is. This is all about diverting as much wealth to the legal profession as possible without creating any new wealth in the process. In the college of economics it’s known as “rent seeking”, which really means manipulating the power of the state to divert resources to a favoured individual or group, in this case, lawyers.
    individual or group.
