Who exactly are the regulators?

We’ve been litigating and trying cases against the insurance industry for almost 30 years now. (Time sure flies…). Many of the laws that govern insurance here in Florida and elsewhere, begin with “model acts” drafted by The National Association of Insurance Commissioners, whose members are the top insurance regulators from each of the 50 states.

Please explain to me why we need civil justice “reform”, exactly?

The general public expects that the government, federal, state, and local, is really “watching the store”, and will agressively prosecute and punish wrongdoers. That just isn’t the case. During the past 30 years, we have eliminated, privatized, and weakened government watchdog and prosecution functions to the point that they are almost laughable. If things weren’t […]

Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there…. to make money in a crisis

Another example of advertising and reality being diametrically opposed. Nothing I write can add to this story: http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20101205/ARTICLE/12051021/2062/NEWS?p=all&tc=pgall Now, of course the insurance industry and it lobbyists are asking the legislature for more “reform”. Now who do you think that “reform” will favor? Individuals, families, small businesses? ……..and I’ve got some swampland in the Everglades […]

Advertising to “help” injured people

Over the years, we’ve all seen an explosion of TV advertising for injured people. Almost all of the ads involve a variation of a promise to get the injured person what they “deserve”. Aside from the fact that “deserving” compensation does not necessarily follow from an injury, the sad truth is that this constant “we’ll […]

and why are you against health insurance reform exactly?

Having spent much of our practice representing folks against health insurers and HMO’S, we know first and why the health system is broken and needs reform. It is astounding how anyone can vote against their own best interests. In the USA, no one should bankrupt themselves and ruin their family’s finances because they are sick […]

Terrific New Reuters Article on Class Action Notices

Maybe because of inertia, maybe because it is easy, maybe because we simply don’t put 2 & 2 together, folks do things the same old way, even if that way is not the best way. This past Friday, Felix Salmon, at Reuters, posted this blog post: http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/11/19/can-legal-due-process-move-online/ It seems that almost every day in USA […]

Consumer Rights are in Jeopardy

How many consumers recognize that when they “agree” to a licensing agreement, when they get a new cell phone, when they open an account at a bank, when they buy a new computer, or a new software program, that they are “agreeing” to waive their rights to go to court, if they are cheated, and […]

An excellent well written Op Ed

I haven’t posted on this blog in a while, but I read this Op Ed by Bob Herbert in the New York Times last week that I just had to share: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/18/opinion/18herbert.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss Mr. Herbert in a few words, without any political hyperbole, described how the leaders of our country are disconnected with how bad things […]
