Houston Texas Hailstorm Lawyer
In 2016, hail damage cost the residents of Texas considerably. This past
April, two recent hailstorms in North Texas and San Antonio are estimated
to have collectively caused over $2 billion in damage. Like Murphy and
Wylie, Areas suffered from softball-sized hailstones in the North Texas
storm that produced unsafe conditions and incredible destruction. It is
believed that restoring the damage caused by this weather phenomenon could
take years. To escape exclusions and barriers to claimants' payment,
a Hail Injury Insurance lawyer may offer the support required.
In San Antonio, where baseball-sized hail produced an approximate $1.4
billion in destruction throughout the area, the tale was close, rendering
it the most expensive hailstorm in the history of Texas. These storms,
and many like them, cost property owners heavily, and the insurance companies
that are supposed to help make matters worse all too often.
What does hail mean for insurers?
Damage has not been limited to just roofs with the extent of these powerful
storms, such as siding, windows, and other exterior areas of commercial
buildings, has also seen significant damage. Both residential and industrial
property owners are also waiting for insurance agencies to process their
applications and approve them to rebuild their houses or residences better.
Insurance companies have been slow to respond to the large influx of claims
that have resulted from the hail events in Texas due to the massive costs
that storms like these cause. While insurance companies are aware of the
risk of large-scale storms and other catastrophes, they remain ill-equipped
to deal with the number of claims these storms bring and have an expensive
impact on their bottom line.
Insurance companies are no strangers to the harm caused by these occurrences.
In 2012, similar storms swept across the Rio Grande Valley, causing residential
damage of approximately $330 million alone. Insurance companies were then
slow and reluctant to process claims, and as a result, in connection with
these storms, thousands of lawsuits have been filed in the area.
HAIL INSURANCE PROBLEM
Unfortunately, even if property damage claims are covered, insurance companies
continue to tend to drag out the processing of these claims. Not just
that, but they may even dispute the request or deny coverage for it flat
out. Insurance companies often employ these tactics to avoid paying the
full value of a claim. Both residential and commercial property owners
may receive improperly rejected claims, delayed payment, and even bad
faith for refusal to pay a covered claim on the part of the insurance company.
A skilled insurance solicitor may level the playing field and find illegitimate
grounds why the policy can be disputed or refused by an insurance provider.
