Warm weather is a breeding ground for severe storms. Windstorms and hailstorms seem to thrive in the warm Houston air. Serious hail storms can produce hailstones the size of softballs. Hail of that size can do serious damage to homes and cars. These harms often result in the wrongful denial of your claim. You need a Houston hail damage insurance claims lawyer.
Hailstorms in the Houston area have caused damage costing hundreds of millions of dollars. High winds, driving rain, and pelting hail can demolish homes and businesses. Hailstones have been known to rip apart siding, severely damage roofs, and destroy air conditioning systems. This type of costly damage means insurance claims. And any insurance claim means frustration, headaches, and often disappointed customers.
If you’ve had hail damage to your home or business, you’ve likely made a claim on your insurance. Few of us can afford to pay cash for serious construction repairs. You may also be feeling rather unsatisfied with your insurance company if your claim has been denied or underpaid. Many insurance companies are experts at finding ways to wrongfully deny your claim.
Insurance Companies May Wrongfully Deny Your Claim
Most of us don’t want to make a claim on our insurance. We don’t want to lose our coverage or risk raising our rates. So, when we do use our insurance, it is because we have to. Insurance companies aren’t always on the up and up. Many find ways to wrongfully deny your claim. Or they may look for ways to underpay your claim. Some common excuses for not paying what they should include:
- Your roof was too old
- You didn’t maintain your home the way you should
- The damage was already there
- Your possessions weren’t worth what you say they are worth
- Saying you need a patch job instead of replacing things or fixing them properly
For many of us, our home is our biggest asset. A natural disaster is one thing. An insurance company taking advantage of you to ruin your home is another.
