Hurricane Harvey is arguably one of the most devastating weather events Houston has ever seen. With estimated damages over $100 billion, its impact has been far-reaching, from Corpus Christi, to Victoria, to Houston, as well as the Louisiana border, matching the sprawl and population of the state we call home.
When the hurricane made landfall and its winds and rain as a tropical storm began to seriously endanger the lives and homes of our neighbors, our first concern was for the safety and well-being of all those we love and care about. We live together in this Texas community. Just like many residences and commercial buildings, our offices were also at grave risk when the winds and water of this weather event struck. We have felt your loss, and here at Clark, Love & Hutson, PLLC we are with you.
As we move from rescue and relief into the recovery phase of this natural disaster, we must also consider what that will mean for those of us displaced by the effects of the storm. If you were one of those to meet that great misfortune, the time has come to ensure that you will be protected and properly compensated for the damage your homes and businesses suffered so you can begin to rebuild. It is also time to make sure that your insurance company treats you fairly because it is the law.
Recovering Losses From Substantial Property Damage
The damage from Hurricane Harvey came in waves and affected Texas residents differently. No matter the cause, you deserve to be compensated for your loss, and the first step is to file a claim. Hurricane Harvey claims are not easy, and our lawyers can help navigate what is likely multiple insurance policies for your damage, including:
- Flood insurance: Coverage does not come with homeowners policies, and most are insured through the NFIP.
- Wind coverage: This may be through TWIA or another provider, but most homeowners policies do not include wind coverage.
- Inverse condemnation: The government release of reservoirs caused the flooding of many homes, and they should be held accountable for the damage.
