Water Damage to Houston Homes & Businesses

Types of Damage Caused by Water & Floods in Houston, TX

After a home or a business is damaged by water, they may be forced to rebuild entirely. The structure of the building may be compromised by the water or the water may seep into cracks in the building causing mold. The base of your business may be unstable due to the water that has damaged the flooring and the bottom of your building, and it may have claimed many first-floor desks, offices, and even paperwork as a result.

Despite the type of damage that has been caused by a flood or water after a hurricane, it is important to use the services of a Texas insurance claim attorney as soon as possible. While many commercial property insurance policies exclude flood damage, you may still be able to recover financial compensation due to water damage with our help.

Flood Damage from Hurricane Harvey

For 6 days in August 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area with more than 1 trillion gallons of rainfall—enough to keep Niagara Falls flowing for 2 weeks. An out-of-date reservoir system and a once-in-500-year storm created the perfect conditions for unprecedented flooding. Tens of thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed, and over $100 billion in damages may leave Houston in disrepair for years to come.

Unfortunately, many of the people hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey didn’t have flood insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program (underwritten by FEMA), leaving them at the mercy of private insurers. Of the three largest property insurers in Houston, two of them have faced lawsuits for committing insurance bad faith after Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina.

Houston Attorneys Helping Business Owners File Hurricane Claims

If you are a business owner who has suffered a devastating economic loss due to a recent hurricane or tropical storm, call our law firm today. We handle claims relating to water damage and flood damage to businesses throughout Texas and all other Gulf Coast states. Our office understands that losing your business comes as a costly affair, one that every business owner wishes to avoid at any cost. When it comes to claims of water damage and damage due to floods from a hurricane or tropical storm, a person may have a tough time with their insurance provider.

In some cases, an insurer may claim that the business owner's insurance plan does not cover certain damages, such as water damage from a tropical storm. Some insurance companies only cover certain types of water damage, such as from a flood caused by a hurricane. This can mean, for a business owner, that even though the storm began as a hurricane and downgraded or escalated after it passed through your town, you still may not be covered. It is important to have your lawyer review your claim before submitting it to ensure you can seek the maximum amount.
