Here is a Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division opinion issued by Justice Reed O’Conner. This opinion echoes similar opinions being issued in the Federal Courts in Texas. The style of this case is, Twanya Braden v. Allstate Vehicle and Property Insurance Company.
Braden reported a claim for hail and windstorm damage to her house to Allstate. A dispute arose as to the damages amount and appraisers set the amount of loss at $9,005.92. Allstate had made a previous payment and after taking into account the deductible, Allstate paid the balance.
Allstate moved for summary judgment based on the claim having been properly paid pursuant to the appraisal amount and thus, there were no other issues for the Court to decide.
