HB 19, which goes into effect September 1, ensures the “rules of the road” for highway accident cases are applied in a uniform and fair manner
in all Texas courtrooms.
Opportunity seeking plaintiff lawyers partner with unscrupulous medical providers to grossly inflate injury claims far beyond the patient’s actual needs. These exaggerated costs are used to leverage lawsuit settlements. As a result, insurance rates are skyrocketing for the transportation industry and insurers are leaving the market, forcing many companies that operate commercial vehicles to close their doors.
The Texas Legislature must pass common-sense reforms to help level the playing field against these tactics. This includes requiring liable defendants to be responsible for medical bills actually paid or owed by the plaintiff, addressing the “letters of protection” that allow plaintiffs lawyers to sidestep health insurance and addressing legal tactics that manipulate juries into larger settlements.
