Professional Insurance Agents of Florida is proud to join the fight against Florida Accident Fraud and be a part of Gear Up Florida.
Gear Up Florida is a coalition of Florida consumer, business and law enforcement organizations aiming to expose and fight auto insurance fraud in the state of Florida and find common sense solutions.
Florida has been ranked #1 for the highest amount of questionable automobile claims for three consecutive years. Auto insurance rates continue to rise due to fraudulant activity and honest insured's like your are feeling the effects. Gear Up Florida is recommending the Florida Legislature enact common-sense fixes to address the flaws in Florida's no-fault law that allow these abuses to occur. The four steps the coalition recommends are:
1. Unshackle Florida's automobile insurers, allowing them to investigate suspicious claims effectively;
2. Cap attorney's fees in the no-fault cases to eliminate the incentive for frivolous litigation;
3. Provide greater oversight and accountability for Florida medical providers that treat Personal Injury Protection claimants; and
4. Prevent alternative medical operations from providing unnecessary and excessive treatment
