When Your Property Sustains Hail Or Wind Damage, The Insurance Company Should Cover It
You purchase an insurance policy to cover losses from hail and wind damage, among other things. When that damage occurs and your insurance company refuses to pay for the repairs, you are left with the bill. You are entitled by Texas law to have your damaged property repaired or replaced to its pre-loss condition.
Insurance companies claim they will cover you when damage occurs to your business or home. The reality is that they frequently deny claims and refuse to cover the full cost of the damage because their actual mission is to take in as much money as possible while paying out as little as they can. If you are involved in an insurance dispute regarding hail and wind damage to your property, talk to our Texas lawyers about your options.
Hubble & Pistorius has a long history of winning when it comes to insurance litigation. Our firm has handled many cases involving hail and wind damage. We understand what to look for and how to counter insurance companies’ tactics. Our standards of efficient and effective work combined with our excellent customer service have made us one of the premier trial firms in the state.
Holding Insurance Companies Accountable
Many insurance companies will accept a claim in one situation but not in another. For instance, frequently an insurance company will cover hail or wind damage to asphalt shingle roofs, but not to metal roofs, or the adjuster will try to convince you that your hail-damaged roof can be “repaired” by replacing only a fraction of damaged shingles when you may be entitled to a new roof. Our attorneys work diligently to hold insurance companies accountable to their own standards as well as Texas insurance law.
Our firm handles cases involving these and many other issues related to property damage caused by hail and wind:
- Roof damage, including metal roofs
- Unsealed shingles due to wind uplift
- Siding damage
- Damage caused by falling trees
- Damage caused by flying debris
In many situations, we resolve client issues through direct negotiation, mediation or arbitration. If this is not possible, we have extensive trial experience and will not back down when faced with tough opposition.
