Hurricanes & Other Natural Disasters
On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and the surrounding area costing Texas 88 human lives, thousands of homes, and an estimated $125 billion dollars in damages. Across the region, people found their homes, businesses, and churches damaged by one of the most powerful hurricanes on record.
While most took comfort in the fact that their properties were insured against natural disasters, many soon discovered that their insurance companies would go to great lengths to underpay their policyholders, to deny claims, or delay the process. Texans affected by the catastrophic storm were finding that their last safety net - their insurance policy - would not save them from ruin.
At Durrett Law Firm, we have spent the better part of the last three decades helping those affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters to fight for their rightful compensation from insurance companies. Unlike many other local law firms, we did not begin taking hurricane insurance claim cases in the wake of Hurricane Harvey - instead, we have a solid history of case results that reach back almost thirty years.
Many people lost everything they had during Hurricane Harvey - from their homes to their jobs to their loved ones. Even now after the disaster, many are spending the last of their savings and scraping by - all while waiting for their insurance companies to keep their contractual promises and send them payment.
If your property or business was damaged during Hurricane Harvey and you are having difficulty with your insurance company, it is imperative that you speak with a specialized, experienced hurricane insurance claim lawyer immediately. Texas laws are tough on insurance companies, and there are both strict duties and strict deadlines that insurers must meet in regards to hurricane insurance claims. Let us help you hold your insurance company accountable for their broken promises.
