Bad Faith & The Abuse of Civil Remedy Notices

CSK’s nationally recognized bad faith attorneys hold vast experience in defending, guiding and consulting all types of clients in bad faith claims including the abuse of Civil
Remedy Notices (CRN) by Plaintiffs’ attorneys. The intricacies of litigating bad faith issues are routine procedure for many CSK attorneys.

CRNs are processed and filed through The Department of Financial Service (DFS). CRNs are“intended for use by parties who are beginning the process of filing suit against an insurer, when a party feels they have been damaged by specific acts of the insurer.”

However, DFS makes it clear that it “does not involve itself in the litigation filed pursuant to his statute and this program is not intended for consumers seeking the assistance of
the DFS.” Instead, Florida’s Bad Faith Statute delineates the requirement for a CRN. The lack of regulation causes an overwhelming amount of unnecessary litigation. Filing numerous CRNs
have become the norm amongst Plaintiff attorneys wreaking prolonged litigation and financial havoc. When dealing with bad faith, it is important to consult with experienced attorneys. CSK is
here to help.
