Florida Bar Seeks Comments Re Amendment 3 Rule

Comments Off

Your thoughts concerning the wording of a new Rule being drafted by the Florida Bar can be made through January 17. The Florida Supreme Court has determined that the victims of medical malpractice have the legal right to waive the provisions of Amendment 3, the submarine effort of the health care providers and insurance companies to deny legal representation to claimants.

The Florida Bar special committee drafting a rule amendment to establish a procedure for medical liability claimants to waive the rights granted by Amendment 3 – which limits contingency fees in medical malpractice cases – is now accepting lawyer and non-lawyer/public comments.

Comments should be submitted via e-mail to Tony Boggs, director of the Bar’s Legal Division, at
tboggs@flabar.org, or they may be faxed to (850) 561-5665, no later than Jan. 17, at 5:30 p.m. EST.
