Tort Reform Advocates In Tallahassee, FL
Watch this video now to learn more about the Florida Justice Reform Institute.
Florida’s businesses pay the price for Florida’s abusive litigation environment, but there’s a way to make a difference that delivers real results to the bottom line.
The Florida Justice Reform Institute (FJRI) in Tallahassee, Florida, is single-mindedly dedicated to making it harder for trial lawyers to target businesses for lawsuits and the big money it brings them. To do that, we put our resources to work on the front lines, at the point of contact, where it can do the most good, with:
• strong lobbying and visible public relations campaigns;
• credible testimony from legal experts who can counter trial bar sensationalism;
• well-written research that lawmakers find clear, compelling, and useful; and,
• legal support for the law, new and old, via amicus briefs and other direct action.
Using all these tools and more, FJRI brings the fight to the trial lawyers on critical issues such as fair settlement, assignment of benefits, phantom damages, legal and medical fee schedules, workers’ compensation costs, and the operation of state courts.
The work is more critical than ever. Florida’s business community must continue to support a coordinated, long-term offensive to improving Florida’s civil justice system, and FJRI's tort reform is the way to do it.
Join our lobbying organization, now, and help us get the job done.
