Houston Bad Faith Hurricane Insurance Attorney
In the aftermath of a devastating hurricane, people often depend on their insurance policies for the coverage and financial support they need to rebuild their homes, their businesses, and their lives. They are often shocked to discover the harsh truth: insurance companies do not want to pay out large claims – especially when a hurricane causes hundreds of claims to come in at once.
Has Your Hurricane Insurance Claim Been Denied?
Victims of a hurricane often find their claims delayed, devalued, or denied outright due to deceptive policies and bad faith insurance practices. Those especially at risk include residents of Texas’ coastal cities and areas, including:
- Bolivar Peninsula
- Corpus Christi
- Texas City
If an insurance company has unjustly denied or devalued your hurricane damage claim, contact a Houston hurricane insurance claims lawyer at Williams Hart by calling (800) 220-9341.
Fighting Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Insurance companies are morally, ethically, and legally obligated to treat their customers fairly and in good faith. Unfortunately, they do not always stick to this standard. In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina left thousands of families homeless and established itself as one of the costliest and deadliest hurricanes of all time, insurance companies rushed into action – to protect their own interests.
As a result, even though many victims of Hurricane Katrina had dutifully maintained their homeowner’s insurance policies, they were often pressured by insurance companies to settle their claims for far less than the amount they needed and deserved. Some insurers even sought to deny coverage by coercing hurricane victims into signing misleading documents about flood and wind damage – the so-called “flood exception.”
For this reason, Texas hurricane victims are often advised to retain the services of an experienced attorney. If your insurance claim has been wrongfully denied, or if your insurance company tries to force you to settle for less than you deserve, contact the Houston hurricane insurance bad faith lawyers of Williams Hart at (800) 220-9341 for an evaluation of your case.
