Under Texas insurance law: “Payment and acceptance of an appraisal award means there is nothing left for a breach of contract claim seeking those same damages. But a plaintiff may still have a claim under the prompt payment law after it accepts an appraisal award. The Supreme Court of Texas recently held that even a preappraisal payment that seemed reasonable at the time does not bar a prompt-payment claim if it does not ‘roughly correspond’ to the amount ultimately owed.” Randel v. Travelers Lloyds, No. 20-20567 (Aug. 12, 2021).
