Claims Manual

CHCLW Florida Claims Manual

Our firm publishes a Claims Manual, available free of charge in printed and electronic editions, for the benefit of our clients. This guide is currently in its Twenty-Seventh Edition, and is updated semi-annually. The latest revision to the manual is available for download below.

The 2017 edition of the Florida Claims Manual is our twenty-seventh edition and represents a continuing effort to provide current information to clients of our firm who are defending claims in the state of Florida. The Manual is designed to provide accurate information; but is not meant to be an exhaustive analysis; nor is it designed to provide the final word in any particular claim or issue. For specific case-by-case analysis, please contact the undersigned in Orlando at (888) 841-5030.

There have been no significant changes by the Florida Legislature which will impact upon the subjects covered in this Manual.

The Chapter on Medications/Medical Terms was completed by Chris Coleman in our Ocala office and please note that Chris previously practiced as a hospital pharmacist for eight years with the last three years in the director's position.

The Chapters on Employment Discrimination and Florida Homeowners Insurance Claims were authored by Doug LaPointe in our Orlando office.

Please note that additional copies of this Manual are available exclusively for clients of our firm at no charge. Please email me at and provide your mailing address and copies will be forwarded.

No section or portion of this Manual is to be reproduced, copied or reprinted without the express written consent from the undersigned. A copyright exists on these materials and all rights are reserved.
