Texas Asbestos Bill in Limbo

The Texas Legislature's 81st regular session ends today. As it ends, hundreds of bills go unresolved including two involving asbestos and mesothelioma cases in Texas. Senate Bill 1123 and House Bill 1811 would change the way proof of burden works in these cases in Texas. Instead of requiring defendants to prove that they did not expose plaintiffs to asbestos, the plaintiffs would have to prove that they were exposed by the defendant.

While SB 1123 was approved in the Senate back in April, it has not made it through the House. The deadline for the House to pass it was midnight of May 26. Similarly, the House has not passed HB 1811 and it is still in the House Committee  on the Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence. The futures of these two bills are unknown and may not be known for some time.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the Texas mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
