Legal Brief: Florida Supreme Court Rules That Insurers’ Payments to Expert Witnesses Are Discoverable dd26a189-23fe-4a5b-a381-9a7bce43f0d0

10/20/2021


In two decisions last week, the Florida Supreme Court upheld previous court rulings that required insurers and their defense law firms, when asked during the discovery process in lawsuits, to disclose their payments made to physician witnesses.

Data Drives the Discussion 0bfd8713-eee6-4b36-99bd-a89ea3dcce27

Many factors have led to this position of influence, not the least of which is the favorable way agents are viewed by members of the Legislature. The association's mission is: "To serve the needs of Florida insurance agents and consumers by promoting a healthy and competitive insurance environment."
