Storm-chasing trial lawyers have swept through Texas litigation for years, seeking to profit from the damage and devastation caused by natural disasters. Typically it is hurricane destruction that draws personal injury lawyers’ attention. But in 2012 and 2013, two historic hailstorms hit the state, causing millions of dollars in damage. True to form, trial lawyers jumped at the chance to profit. While hailstorm cases have been filed in 41 counties in Texas, Hidalgo County is at the eye of this storm. As of May 2015, 11,000 out of 21,000 cases had been filed there.
