Attorneys fees would be more difficult for “bad actor” water restoration companies and their attorneys to collect from insurance companies under a bill advanced Tuesday by the state House Judiciary Committee. The committee voted 13-5 to advance the bill to the full House despite concerns by some members that it would tilt the playing field too far in favor of insurance companies in disputes over how much should be paid to repair damaged properties. Similar to a bill that passed the full House last spring but wasn’t considered in the Senate, the new bill aims to remove incentives for water restoration companies and their attorneys to sue insurers.
