Common Types of Storm Damage

No two storms are alike and, as such, the damage to your home or business needs specialized care. Storms of all sizes can cause considerable damage including:

  • Hail damage
  • Wind damage
  • Lightning strikes
  • Water damage
  • Other weather-related damage

Whether the damage is big or small, our dedicated legal team can help you gather evidence, negotiate with the insurance company and file a lawsuit on your behalf if needed.

What to do if You Experience Storm Damage

The first thing to do when you experience storm damage is prioritize your personal safety. Once the storm has passed and it is safe to do so, document the damage to your home, business and property with video and pictures. It’s vital that you contact the insurance company as soon as possible after the damage. Waiting too long to report the damage can affect your claim negatively, so the sooner, the better. In fact, under Texas law you only have two years from the date of the damage to file an insurance claim – failure to do so will forever bar you from bringing an action and getting compensation. You should also take measures to prevent further damage to your home by additional weather events or theft by securing broken windows and ensuring that entry to your home or business is protected.

If your claim is denied or the offer you receive is less than what you need to cover repairs, you have the right to appeal the decision. To find out exactly what steps you need to take to appeal your insurer’s decision, carefully review the terms of your policy. The sooner you consult with an experienced storm damage attorney, like the storm damage legal team at the Law Offices of Colby Lewis, the sooner your claim can be resolved and you can go back to life as usual.

Your attorney is a vital part of your appeal process. For instance, our lawyers are well-versed in insurance procedures and can help you get the results you need, fast. And, if the negotiations with your insurance company are unsuccessful, we have all the tools you need to get the compensation you deserve for the damages your property has sustained.
