Proposed Senate bill calling for hailstorm litigation reform finds favor in insurance industry

AUSTIN – Texas lawmakers have filed Senate Bill 10 in an effort to pass legislation that would decrease, or halt altogether, hailstorm litigation abuse.

....

Hail litigation has spiraled out of control in Texas, mainly because of a small group of bad actors who abuse the system,” said Hancock in a statement published Feb. 13. “Senate Bill 10 will address this problem, improve transparency and protect Texas consumers from sky-high premiums without infringing on their right to make an insurance claim or sue their insurance company when it's not holding up its end of a deal.”

 


Strong storm drops damaging hail

Roy

Brookshire, Texas -

Residents in Brookshire were woken up in the middle of the night because quarter-sized hail was falling.

The nearly 10-minute hail storm moved through about 2:15 a.m. on Wednesday, the first day of spring.

Thousands of pieces of hail littered the Meadowood Apartments in the 6000 block of Meadowood Lane. Residents there found damage to their homes and vehicles. Every north-facing window in the complex was hit by the hail.
