Taking On Insurance Companies After Natural Disasters
On Aug., 25 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast. As officials in gulf communities like Rockport, Port Lavaca and Port Mansfield braced for hurricane-force winds and several foot storm surges, residents throughout the Houston area could not anticipate what would happen next. A few short weeks later, Hurricane Irma bore down on Florida, leaving a path of devastation in its wake.
From hurricanes and tropical storms to tornadoes and hailstorms, it is difficult to prepare for natural disasters and the devastation they inflict. For the thousands of residents and business owners who suffer property damage due to floodwaters, hail and high winds, an insurance policy is supposed to act as a safety net. Unfortunately, even though most residents and business owners throughout the Houston area have insurance, and many even flood insurance, insurance companies frequently attempt to deny or provide minimum payouts for property claims related to natural disasters.
