Client Alert: New Texas Insurance Law Takes Effect Friday: How to Preserve Your Rights

House Bill 1774, which imposes new restrictions on claims against insurance companies for failing to cover or failing to adequately cover flood, hurricane, wind, or rainstorm damage (or other property damage claims), takes effect this Friday, September 1, 2017.   We recognize that insurance claims are likely the last thing on the minds of many in Texas in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, but because the new law limits the rights of insureds, we wanted to make certain you have this information at your disposal.
