Lax regulation has allowed companies to abuse their customers in ways that increase their bottom line. They will “Delay, Deny, and Defend” claims knowing that everyday Texans don’t have the time and legal resources to fight it. It has also allowed insurance companies to carve up their policies over the last decade, offering less coverage, while continuing to raise premiums, leaving many Texans with “Junk Policies” that cost too much and cover too little.
