'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.

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.
