The number of auto glass lawsuits filed in Florida went up by more than 4,000% in ten years (2011 to 2021).
While progress has been made in Florida to address the state’s deepening property insurance market crisis, there is also a crisis in the auto market.

Windshields are a key safety measure in a car, and ensuring they are correctly restored or replaced is paramount.
Fix the Cracks is an initiative to protect consumers from predatory auto glass claims and litigation, and to ensure passenger safety. Here you will find resources on how so many Floridians are unknowingly signing their rights away to vendors who are in cahoots with trial attorneys, why the impact of those fees is felt by every insured driver and how safety may be compromised.
