Attorney Michael Moore and his staff at Moore Law Firm spent the evening speaking with frustrated Victoria, Texas residents about their Hurricane Harvey insurance claims Wednesday evening.
As suspected, many home and business owners in the area had all sorts of issues with their insurance carrier from undervalued claims, denied claims, to policyholders completely unable to get a hold of their insurance adjusters.
“We understand how frustrating this entire process can be for people. We’re two months out from Harvey making landfall and a lot of Victoria residents still don’t have their claims resolved or their homes repaired because they’re simply getting the runaround from their insurance company,” said Moore. “There are other options policyholders can take when dealing with their insurance company that simply doesn’t want to pay out their claims. Getting the message out there was important and, although there’s still work to be done, I’m very confident that we accomplished that tonight.”
Victoria residents filed into the conference room at the Holiday Inn Express in North Victoria, each looking to have an opportunity to speak to Moore one on one about their insurance claims, all with documents in-hand, ready to receive free legal consultations that were being offered.
“Having this opportunity to meet and listen to our neighbors in Victoria was a great experience for our staff,” said Moore Law Firm Chief Business Development Officer Joseph D. Oviedo. “What’s awful is that these residents are paying thousands of dollars a year in insurance premiums only to have their insurance company turn their backs on them in their time of need. Where was Flo from Progressive tonight? Where was the Gecko from Geico? Where was Jake from State Farm? I guess they couldn’t make it to our event to help answer some of our guests’ questions.”
Moore Law Firm plans to hold more free town-hall meetings with residents all across cities that were affected by Hurricane Harvey along the Coastal Bend.
“We’re mapping out our next events in Cuero, Refugio, Goliad, and back to Victoria,” said Moore.
