Did You Know Your Texas Insurer Could Owe You Interest?

Bad Faith Insurance

This is great news for policyholders but still begs the question – how do you know when an insurance company is acting in bad faith?

Post-Pandemic Rideshare May Look Different In Texas

Uber & Lyft Rideshare Accidents

No company was left unaffected by the whirlwind that has been 2020. Restaurants and bars are starting to open back up here in Texas, but we are far from heading back to normal. The way that we plan a night out or a trip to go grocery shopping is still heavily affected by COVID-19.

In 2019, going out was easy. If you wanted to have a few drinks or didn’t want to park downtown, you could just call an Uber. Maybe you called a Lyft.

Either way, these options don’t seem so appealing right now. No one wants to be stuck in a car with a stranger, touching surfaces that other strangers just touched.
