Florida’s Governor Signs Bill to Restore Caps on Attorney Fees in Workers’ Comp Cases

The AP reported, “Gov. Charlie Crist has signed a bill to restore caps on fees for lawyers representing workers in compensation appeals for on-the-job injuries.” The bill undoes “a Supreme Court opinion by removing an existing provision saying such fees must be reasonable.”

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported, “The move aims to keep workers compensation insurance costs down, helping businesses that are struggling to keep people employed.” However, “opponents say the law creates an unfair advantage for insurers, whose attorneys’ fees are not capped.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
