Fixing Florida’s Property Insurance Crisis and Bottom Five Legal Climate
Despite its otherwise strong business climate, Florida’s national and global competitiveness is held back by our current bottom-five legal climate ranking and continued spot on the national “Judicial Hellhole” watchlist. Lawsuit abuse has a real cost on employers’ ability to grow their business, support their communities and invest in their workers. It also hits Florida families right in the pocketbook, with frivolous litigation effectively taxing Florida households to the tune of $4,442/year in increased costs. Tort costs alone make up 3.6% of the State GDP– the worst ratio in the country.
Unite with the General Counsels Counsel to drive the reform and solutions necessary to put an end to frivolous litigation and lawsuit abuse in Florida.
The Florida Chamber’s General Counsels Counsel is leading the charge to tackle the Florida 2030 Blueprint goal of improving Florida’s legal climate to the top 12 in the country by 2030.
