Texas is a rare state that requires almost everyone – doctors (it is now dirt cheap because there are so few medical malpractice claims under Texas’ new draconian law), building contractors, and motor vehicle drivers to have insurance. Lawyers are not required to have insurance. Texas lawyer oppose mandatory legal malpractice insurance. They are wrong in opposing legal malpractice insurance, these lawyers open the door to hypocracy. Moreover, any Texas injury lawyer that does not have legal malpractice insurance is putting themselves and their clients at great risk.
