Texas Freeze Litigation

Erin Hively Mar 04, 2021

More than 4 million customers lost power during below-freezing weather in February 2021 due to the negligence of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the entity that operates Texas’s electrical grid. Texans sustained injuries as a result of hypothermia, dehydration, and the inability to get medical assistance. It will take months to understand the extent of the damage. In addition to physical injury, commercial and residential properties experienced extensive property damage, much of which may not be covered by insurance. 

SimplyConvert Can Help Your Firm Get Involved Now

SimplyConvert’s proprietary Instant Case Evaluation Platform can help your team seek justice for Texans experiencing physical injuries or property damage from the catastrophic events of the avoidable power grid failure. 

We partner with the most qualified lawyers in every litigation and practice area to formulate the criteria for qualifying clients. Once we program our AI-powered chatbot with the litigation-specific criteria, it is ready to chat with website visitors and qualify potentially viable claims for the litigation. 

Firms on the SimplyConvert platform can immediately begin case intake for the litigation. (If your team wishes to modify the criteria, we are happy to discuss how we can revise it to work for your practice.) As with all of our Instant Case Evaluators, no litigation-specific training is required.
