Texas Hurricane Damage Dispute Attorneys
Windstorm Insurance Attorney
If you live in a coastal Texas county such as Brazoria County, Galveston County or Chambers County, or even southern Harris County, your only option for hurricane insurance coverage is likely the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association. This is a state-formed entity that takes on risk other insurers will not, but it is essentially managed and operated independently as a private insurer.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, an alarming number of the 200,000-plus people covered by Texas Windstorm Insurance who suffered serious damage have had serious difficulty getting their claims approved and settled fairly. At Doyle Raizner, we are prepared to thoroughly evaluate your case and advocate for you against the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) or any private homeowners insurance company.
Proven Lawyers for Victims of Hurricane Ike and Other Texas Windstorms
TWIA readily acknowledges its role as the “insurer of last resort” for homeowners in areas susceptible to hurricanes. In no way does this justify or excuse the way its representatives have approached Hurricane Ike claims nor the way distressed victims have been treated. Some of the most prominent and egregious complaints have centered on:
- Denying claims outright and then discouraging victims from reopening them
- Drastically underestimating home and other property damage, as well as the costs of repairs, calculating those estimates well below the market rate and ultimately offering totally inadequate settlements
- Imposing false and unfair limits on certain types of claims
Since Ike caused its devastation along the Gulf Coast in 2008, we have been first-call, effective Texas hurricane damage dispute lawyers — even when the opponent is the insurer of last resort. Our dedicated attorneys have already won numerous settlements against TWIA.
Focused on Obtaining a Settlement That Truly Pays for Damages You Suffered
As the debate continues over a system that allows powerful private insurance companies to decide where in Texas they provide coverage, leaving thousands at the mercy of a “risk pool” that is apparently under-funded and ineffective, what matters to you is your settlement and recovery.
