  • Can I sue for property damage in Texas?

Yes, if you file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations – two years from the date of the incident – you may be able to recover compensation. Failure to bring a claim within the two-year window will prevent you from bringing a claim at all.

  • Why has my insurance company denied my storm damage claim?

There could be any number of reasons why your storm damage claim was denied. Waiting to file a claim, failing to provide documentation or allowing your policy coverage to lapse can all lead to a denial. For a full evaluation of your case, consult an experienced storm damage attorney who specializes in Texas storm damage claims.

  • My home only sustained minor damage. Can I still file with the insurance company?

Yes! Any amount of damage caused by a weather-related event can and should be compensated for by your insurer. Even minor damages can lead to bigger problems such as mold so it’s important to get the damage fixed quickly.

  • Should I accept an insurance settlement offer even if it is too low to pay for all my repairs?

You aren’t under any obligation to accept a lowball offer. In fact, by accepting an undervalued settlement offer, you effectively agree that the issue is resolved and are barred from bringing further action. If you feel that an insurance company’s offer is too low, consult with a trusted storm damage attorney.
