Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law new requirements for public adjusters as part of a wider piece of legislation addressing consumer protections for the P&C and health insurance marketplaces.

“Florida had public adjusters running amok in this state,” says Michael Steinger, a founder and managing partner of InjuryLawyers.com. “We had public adjusters that were not licensed in Florida that would descend upon a neighborhood going door-to-door to get homeowners to sign contracts, and they were exorbitant in their charges.”
