Ins. Code Section 443.255
Allowance of Contingent and Unliquidated Claims
(a)A claim of an insured or third party may be allowed under Section 443.253, regardless of the fact that the claim was contingent or unliquidated, if any contingency is removed in accordance with Subsection (b) and the value of the claim is determined. For purposes of this section, a claim is contingent if:
(1)the accident, casualty, disaster, loss, event, or occurrence insured, reinsured, or bonded or reinsured against occurred on or before the date fixed under Section 443.151; and
(2)the act or event triggering the insurer’s obligation to pay has not occurred as of the date fixed under Section 443.151.
(b)Unless the receivership court directs otherwise, a contingent claim may be allowed if the claimant has presented proof reasonably satisfactory to the liquidator of the insurer’s obligation to pay or the claim was based on a cause of action against an insured of the insurer and:
(1)it may be reasonably inferred from proof presented upon the claim that the claimant would be able to obtain a judgment; and
(2)the person has furnished suitable proof, unless the receivership court for good cause shown otherwise directs, that no further valid claims can be made against the insurer arising out of the cause of action other than those already presented.
(c)The liquidator may petition the receivership court to set a date before which all claims under this section are final. In addition to the notice requirements of Section 443.007, the liquidator shall give notice of the filing of the petition to all claimants with claims that remain contingent or unliquidated under this section.
