Homeowner’s Insurance Attorney in Houston
So close to the Gulf of Mexico, Houston can get slammed with devastating
hurricanes every year. Although 2015 has gone down as a relatively mild
year for hurricane season, many meteorologists and weather experts agree
that 2016 could be more severe than an average year. Texas homeowner’s
who had no insurance coverage for hurricane-related damage are smartly
doing so now. It should expected solve the most of their concerns, but
not much goes as expected when it comes to insurance companies.
Many insurance providers have become notorious for doing all they can do
pay out as little as they can to people filing hurricane insurance claims
for their homes. At Dick Law Firm, we cannot stand the idea of a homeowner
being shorted out money they need and deserve due to a powerful insurance
corporation stifling them. With well over
1,000 cases handled in our firm’s history of practice, we will be able
to rest easy at night knowing that a highly-motivated Houston insurance
bad faith lawyer is on your side.

File Your Hurricane Damage Claim
The damage caused by a hurricane can be absolutely catastrophic, leveling
entire houses as winds over 150 miles per hour ravage the area. Depending
on the construction and location of your home, the damage could be far
less severe. It is in such cases that insurance providers may try to shirk
their responsibilities by claiming that reported damage was not actually
caused by a hurricane.
Look for and catalogue any damage caused by a hurricane, including:
Flood damage (broken pipes)
- Sheared roofing and tiling
- Shattered windows
- Removed sections of framework
Hurricane season in Texas is declared to last between June 1st to November 30th, give or take a couple of weeks. It is recommended that you photograph
your home in Spring or early summer season to create a clear distinction
between the condition it was in before any large storms or hurricanes
rolled through Houston. If you do not have hurricane coverage, buy
before a hurricane swells up in the Gulf of Mexico; if there is a hurricane system
present or a high likelihood that one will generate soon, you may be unable
to purchase or modify hurricane coverage.
Fighting the Good Fight Against Bad Faith Insurance
No matter how much preparation you did or did not do before your home was
damaged by a hurricane should be irrelevant to the coverage amounts you
are granted if you have homeowner’s insurance that covers hurricane
damage. Imagine if you bought a car but the dealership only allowed you
to drive it when they thought it was necessary. You would not allow such
an outrage, so why allow it now? Get your
