'Voters of this state want to see better access to records.They want better protection,' said Imbertson, who lives in Jupiter. 'If it's not going to be afforded to them by the medical community, they want their legislators to do their job and protect them.'

But such actions won't necessarily stop insurance companies from raising premiums, said Jacqueline Imbertson, a founder of Floridians for Patient Protection, an advocacy group affiliated with the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers and the Florida Lawyers Action Group.
A better method would be to implement stricter screening measures on doctors, make doctor disciplinary records more public and create a three-strikes-your-out policy for doctors who have judgements against them, she said.
"It does no good to establish caps or put limitations if you haven't resolved the core problems - eliminating bad apples," Imbertson said."If caps are imposed, there are no guarantees that premiums won't continue to rise."

However, Floridians for Patient Protection President Jacqueline Imbertson said today she misunderstood the reporter's question.She thought she was being asked whether her position was being paid for by the academy.She is an unpaid volunteer, she said.
Floridians for Patient Protection opposes, as does the academy, a proposed cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice suits.
A July 2 Tampa Tribune article quoted Imbertson as saying: "The group is supported by private individuals and does not receive money from trial attorneys."She also was unable to say who funded a recent television spot advancing her organization's cause.Her quote got the opposition moving quickly.
