Texans for Lawsuit Reform (TLR)

Texans for Lawsuit Reform (TLR) are helping to put a stop to lawyer-driven abuse of hail insurance claims.  TLR has fought the Texas Trial Lawyers Association over blatant litigation abuse in the past and they’ve been successful.  The TLR has seen the trial lawyer’s litigious model before:  recruit, sue and settle in bulk.  The TLR has joined the Texas insurance industry in putting a stop this injustice.
