Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Public Adjusters and Policy Holders in Florida
48 hour solicitation ban ruled unconstitutional.
The Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA) today applauded the Florida Supreme Court ruling that declared unconstitutional the state law banning public insurance adjusters from soliciting policyholders 48 hours after a damaging event calling it a victory for consumers throughout Florida.
FAPIA has always been committed to working with the Legislature, the Cabinet and state insurance officials to promote policies and legislation that protect consumers, said FAPIA President Harvey Wolfman. On behalf of FAPIA and the policyholders we serve, I am grateful that the Supreme Court ruled in our favor, agreeing with our position that the ban on solicitation is a violation of public adjusters’ free speech rights and more importantly, an unfair rule that put policyholders at a disadvantage. This is a victory for consumers in Florida.
