Fair Appraisal & Safe Repairs


About these important bills:

HB 1437 and SB 554 make fair appraisal mandatory in Texas auto policies. Appraisal is a process that allows you and your insurance company to determine how much a repair will cost. After a car crash, insurance companies often lowball claims, trying to “repair” your car on the cheap. Repairs must be done safely, according to the manufacturer’s specifications, to protect you and your family. Fair appraisal, with protections built in to prevent delay tactics, can help you resolve disputes with your insurance company quickly, so you can get back on the road with the confidence your repair was done safely. 

HB 1321 will ensure quality auto parts are used to make quality repairs that follow accepted safety standards.  And it will prevent insurance companies from steering people to their “preferred” body shops. Every Texan should have the right to a quality repair, made in a quality repair shop of your choice, using quality parts – without insurance companies bullying us.
