What jurors don't get to hear

Have you ever served on a jury?  Were there things you would have liked to have known the answer to?  Chances are you didn't hear the whole story because the rules are slanted in favor of the insurance industry.

Did you know that a juror in Florida is not allowed to know whether the defendant in a lawsuit has insurnace coverage to compesate the plaintiff for the accident?This is due to a law in Florida known as the non-joinder statute and it was put into place due to the pressure and money from the insurance industry.  It is easy to see why the insurance industry would not want a juror to know this, because as the law stands now anytime a plaintiff sues a defendant it looks like the defendant is actually the one who will have to personally pay the judgment.

Our law firm has NEVER attmepted to collect payment directly from a defendant. In fact we have never even filed a lawsuit against anyone who didn't have insurance to cover the claim.

What else are you not allowed to know?  Well, you are not allowed to know if anyone was charged in an accident.  The police report, which would presumably show who was at fault for an accident is not even admissible in a civil automobile accident trial.  Who do you think is to blame for that one?  You guessed it, the insurance industry strikes again.

The next time you find yourself serving on a jury and you find yourself with unanswered questions feel confident it is not the Plaintiff's fault that you aren't hearing the whole story.
