Transformative Litigation Reforms Lead to Lower Costs for Florida Homeowners

TAMPA, Fla., July 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — American Integrity Insurance, Florida’s premier residential property insurer, announces a significant rate reduction of 6.9%, benefiting more than 55,000 customers. Additionally, nearly 215,000 homeowners will enjoy stable rates, with no increases following the annual filing set for mid-July 2024.

This rate reduction is a direct result of groundbreaking legislative reforms enacted in late 2022 and early 2023, which have effectively curbed the rampant roof claim and litigation abuse that plagued the industry. “Historic legislative reforms have begun to dismantle the costly ‘tort tax’ that consumers have shouldered for years,” stated Bob Ritchie, President and CEO. “With these unnecessary costs diminishing, we are looking forward to passing the savings directly to our policyholders.”

For nearly a decade, frivolous claims and litigation drove Florida’s property insurance market to the brink. The enactment of SB 2A in December 2022 marked a turning point by eliminating one-way attorney fees and the assignment of benefits. These crucial changes have curtailed the predatory practices of “billboard attorneys” who exploited regulatory loopholes for personal gain.

Jon Ritchie, Chief Operating Officer, expressed deep gratitude for the legislative champions behind these reforms. “We extend our heartfelt thanks to Governor DeSantis, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, and House Speaker Paul Renner for their unwavering commitment to restoring Florida’s property insurance market. These reforms are paving the way for a more affordable and sustainable future for both insurance customers and companies.”
