Wowzers! I had no idea. Is there a tort reform movement there?
There are people/criminals in dade/broward counties who stage wrecks and then go to certain doctors who go to certain lawyers who go to certain judges and then receive almost fixed amounts without even going to court. "Out of court settlements" are common since it costs so much to litigate. Its so easy to collect 10k-50k that huge criminal groups are out there doing it and ground zero is South Fla. the stolen car/third world capital of the world.
