HELP STOP HB7/SB74 - SEND an EMAIL to your Florida Legislators and ask them to OPPOSE HB7/SB74
Immunity is a dangerous answer to a non-existent problem: There has been no rush of COVID lawsuits against health care providers and businesses. The real threat to businesses is not their customers, patients or lawyers, it is insurance companies. The vast majority of Florida COVID claims this year are from businesses suing their insurance companies. Our front-line heroes and seniors deserve our support and protection -- not a scheme to block accountability for irresponsible corporations.
Barely 1.5 percent of all Florida COVID claims this year have been personal injury or health-related cases. There simply is no problem to fix – because the vast majority of businesses and employers have responded to this pandemic responsibly. To rebuild Florida’s economy, we need to restore public confidence and ensure the safety of all Floridians. Eliminating accountability and incentives for businesses to reopen safely is the worst message to send.
We all want our economy back up and running and to do that we need businesses operating safely and Floridians back at work. We need to be united for Florida’s business including laws that keep everyone safe and healthy.
