Damage to Property is Real, and the Insurance Claim Process is Difficult

To Successfully Navigate the Insurance Claims Process You Need Information and Advocacy

Despite all of the great technological developments implemented throughout Texas and Wisconsin, the weather and weather related events are an undeniable source of loss for residents in the states. Weather it is the hurricane season in Texas or intermittent strong storms producing wind and hail damage throughout Wisconsin, the weather can have a serious negative impact property.

In most occasions, weather damage sustained by property owners is covered under their insurance policy. However, just like with auto insurance policies, the insurance companies will try every trick in the book from delay, underpay to denial in order to avoid having to pay out money to homeowners as the result of insurance claims. Insurance companies can get away with these nefarious, and oftentimes illegal, practices because they, and their team of in-house adjusters, know that after damages occur to a property the number one priority for the property owner is to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

If your home has sustained damage due to wind, hail, rain, any other weather-related events, fire, theft, water damage, etc. it is prudent to seek out the counsel of an attorney, and to do so as soon as possible.  Generally speaking, homeowners that retain the services of an experienced attorney will receive larger payments under their policies in order to repair their property.  This is not a particularly good piece of news, but it is the reality.  Our team has years of experience in negotiating with, and when necessary, pursuing lawsuits in other legal actions against insurance companies that refused to honor the terms of their contracts.
