Law360, New York (December 23, 2014, 11:25 AM EST) -- The number of lawsuits arising from hail-damage claims to residential and commercial properties has increased dramatically over the past few years. Indeed, since 2012, hundreds of lawsuits alleging underpayment of hail-related roof damage claims have been filed in Texas alone. As this onslaught of cases progressed through the courts in 2014, state and federal judges addressed a variety of issues commonly presented by hail-damage disputes, ranging from the timeliness of the insured's claim submission to the proper scope of discovery.
