A blog posting on Orlandosentinel.com Saturday suggest that a fight over whether to extend Florida’s Motor Vehicle No Fault Law is creating “soap opera suspense” in the Florida House of Representatives. The post reports that House Speaker Marco Rubio insists that modifications must “clamp down on trial attorneys.” Representative Kevin Ambler (R-Lutz) is trying to collect signatures to force a vote during a special legislative session next month. Otherwise, the no-fault law is going to sunset.
Several comments were made in response to this post. The comments express concerns over attorney fees, chiropractors, ans more. The comments also note the lack of a permanent injury threshold fueling more lawsuits. It is a very interesting set of comments.
Sure, if personal injury protection is extended, there must be extra fraud protections put into place to maintain an almost broken system. However, if PIP is not extended, the attorneys, chiropractors, and medical doctors will all survive. The consumer, the less fortunate Florida citizen with no health care or medical payment coverage who is injured in a automobile collision, is the one who will suffer from the lack of a no-fault system.
