Where the Candidates Stand on Lawsuit Abuse Reform?

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

Lawsuit abuse is driving up the cost of living for Florida voters and the cost of doing business for small and local businesses.

In 2017, the American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) – for the first time in its history – named Florida as the nation’s worst “Judicial Hellhole.” In addition to the worst ATRA ranking (even worse than California,) the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform named Florida the fifth worst legal climate in America.

As highlighted in our Florida Wins education video, “Meet Mary,“ lawsuit abuse costs the average family of four more than $3,400 per year. The impact on Floridians who are trying to make ends meet while billboard trial lawyers profit off them is undeniable.

As you and your employees head to the polls to vote for Florida’ future, please know there is a difference between Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis. To learn more on where the candidates stand on lawsuit abuse reform, click here.
