For the second year in a row, Claims Journal compiled a list of the top read legal articles of 2016. This year’s article topics covered everything from hail to driverless car litigation.
Several articles on hail topped the list of most read articles this year. What began as a problem in Texas has now reached Colorado, Oklahoma and Minnesota courts. If the barrage of hail damage lawsuits continue, insurers may begin excluding these types of claims, said Steve Badger, a partner with Zelle LLP in Texas.
