Farmers Given OK To Raise Texas Homeowners Insurance Rates (Again)

I just wrote last week about the ridiculous situation in Texas regarding homeowners insurance policies and rates. And now, in a relentless effort to make Texas more “business-friendly” by ensuring that Texans continue to pay the highest premiums in the country, our Insurance Commissioner has approved another rate increase by Farmers. This increase is 10%. Apparently the almost 4% increase by Farmers in March of 2011 was not “business-friendly” enough for the company.

It could be worse though. In its initial filing Farmers actually said an increase of 52% could be justified, but the company was willing to settle for only 10%. What a racket!

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
