A Huge Victory In Florida To Your Privacy! | Thanks To Tallahassee Attorneys Dana Brooks And Jimmy Fasig
On July 1st, Dana Brooks and Jimmy Fasig filed a complaint in the Northern District Federal Court asking the court to find unconstitutional a newly enacted Florida Statute that allows insurance companies and their attorneys to have ex parte communication with med mal plaintiffs’ treating physicians. It would have allowed those meetings to occur without the patient or the patient’s attorney being present and there was no limit on what the defendant doctor’s insurance company or attorney could do with the very private information that is contained in the patient’s medical records.

If this law had been allowed to stand, it would have meant that anything you say to your doctor can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Today United Stated District Judge Robert Hinkle ruled in favor of our client, thereby protecting the right to privacy between a patient and his or her treating physicians. For the full opinion, see the Order.
