Texas Wind Damage Lawyers
Our Houston Wind Insurance Claim Attorneys Cut Through the Red Tape
Wind damage claims seem straightforward on the surface: when high-speed winds rip the roof off your house, knock a tree into your home, or cause any other types of damage, your policy covers it, so you should expect a fairly smooth recovery process. Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case.
See, wind damage might seem straightforward to you, but you are assuming that your adjuster will behave in good faith—i.e., will look at your home, recognize the same cause of damage, and then give you the right amount of money to repair the damage. That is not how insurance companies operate anymore. Instead, your insurer will send investigator after investigator to look for any excuse to decrease or deny relief.
The Most Common Type of Denial for Wind Damage Claims
Take hurricanes, for example. It is not uncommon for a tree to rip out of the ground in hurricane-level winds, potentially tearing up your water main and flooding your property. Legally, that is considered wind damage, but your adjuster will contest it and file it as flooding damage (which they do not cover). Is it ethical? No. Is it reasonable? Not at all. However, it is profitable, and that is all that matters to an insurance company.
Statistically, insurance companies know if they mistreat you, you are more likely to abandon your wind damage claim. In essence, they are playing a game of bureaucratic chicken with you, and they are betting you will blink first.

Make Insurers Take You Seriously: Call a Houston Wind Insurance Lawyer
At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we are native Texans who understand the property damage that can be caused by high winds. Because we live in Tornado Alley, as well as an area that is historically known for disastrous hurricanes (such as Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through the area in 2017), we have seen firsthand how wind damage is often more than just cosmetic.
Wind can cause cataclysmic losses, and the fact is that insurance companies that are meant to be there to help you recover all too often fail to live up to these responsibilities. Far too often, these same insurance companies that make promises of taking care of you when you need it most will turn a blind eye—leaving you to pick up the pieces on your own.
Our Texas wind insurance attorneys refuse to stand by and let that happen. Our entire law firm is proud to help individuals and families throughout Texas by cutting through the paperwork so that they can move toward recovery.
