The 85th Legislative Session is here and we’re ready for the fight. We’re ready to make a stand to preserve policyholder protections, make our roads safer, and protect consumers.
Thanks to your support last session, we were able to beat back insurance lobbyists’ efforts to rob Texas policyholders of their vital legal protections. Now, insurance lobbyists are coming back for your rights.
You have just been involved in a car wreck. Your car is destroyed. You are hurting and disoriented. After you exchange insurance information with the other driver, take photos of the damage, gather witness information, and get to the doctor, what comes next? Often the other driver's insurance company calls wanting a recorded statement from you.
Tori Sommerman, deputy director of Texas Watch, released the following statement:
On October 5th, the Senate Business & Commerce Committee will meet to discuss weather-related litigation in Texas. While industry insiders will testify before the committee and spin the anti-policyholder message pushed throughout the last legislative session and the interim, a key voice is being left out of the legislative process: Texas policyholders.
Since uncovering the insurance industry ploy to force consumers with disputes into the biased, secret process of arbitration, Texas Watch has fought hard to preserve policyholders' legal protections.
