Florida Attorney General Fight Could Impact Legal Consumers In The Sunshine State

As you already know, we are entering a very important election season here in the state of Florida. Not only will high-profile candidates like Rick Scott and Charlie Crist square off to become governor, but many other important roles in the state government will be filled.

One of these is the role of attorney general. The attorney general is the “top lawyer” in the state. He or she serves as a top legal advisor to members of the state legislature. Likewise, he or she is considered the “people’s lawyer” who represents the people when harm befalls them.

In situations where cases are rendered as “The State vs. …,” the attorney general is the top representative of the state, although he or she may not be personally involved in all cases.

The attorney general also has a tremendous amount of influence in terms of meeting with the top executives of states and with lawmakers. The perspective that they provide in this role can begin the process of influencing what laws are made, amended, and pursued.

When It Comes To The State “AG,” Lobbyists From Big Insurance Salivate

The state attorney general is an elected official in most states of the United States, so he or she is likely to come from the Republican or Democratic Party. In this role, however, the person is meant to put their personal politics aside.

One of the most important things that the attorney general does is resist the influence of lobbyist groups and special interests in redefining the laws of the state — especially here in Florida.

Throughout the United States, insurance companies have a tendency to be very powerful as a bloc. They are often seeking ways to modify laws in such a way that allows them to put up a tougher legal fight against claims that arise from accidents.

No matter what your political beliefs are, it’s a good idea to be aware of the attorney general. It’s even more important, however, that your attorneys in a case are aware of the legal climate.

When pursuing an insurance claim in connection with an accident, it is important to be willing to go “all the way” — to the state capitol if necessary — to win. While this is virtually never necessary, nothing less than total preparation will do.

With that in mind, then, it’s good for them to understand the composition of the state supreme court, appellate courts, and yes, even the background of the attorney general.

Most of the time, people in the Sunshine State and elsewhere don’t think too much about who is occupying the office of state attorney general. However, it can definitely have an impact.

For example, attorney generals have influence that they can use to encourage laws that will favor big business plaintiffs in wrongful injury cases — or they might choose to do the very opposite.

Even if your case is already being pursued, it’s important for your legal team to take note of any changing conditions and to be sure your rights are protected no matter what happens “out there.”
