It has been five weeks since Hurricane Harvey has devastated the Coastal Bend area. By now, an insurance premium paying resident living in Refugio or in Aransas Pass may have already gotten the news that their insurance adjuster doesn’t think the broken shingles on their roof was caused by this historic storm. A family living in Rockport or Victoria has just received a letter from their insurance carrier that may as well have had a giant red “REJECTED” stamp on it. A small business in Corpus Christi or Portland will have to close up shop because their insurance won’t cover the actual cost to get their business to pre-storm condition.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Being in this situation is unbelievably frustrating, but there ARE some steps that you can take to help get your Hurricane Harvey storm claim adjusted fairly.
Hire A Public Adjuster
If you don’t trust that your insurance carrier from State Farm or Allstate fairly adjusted your claim, you can opt to hire a public adjuster to re-adjust your property damage. For those who don’t know what exactly a public adjuster is, they are independent (meaning they DO NOT answer to your insurance carrier) claims adjusters licensed by the Texas Department of Insurance. Hiring an experienced public adjuster is a great step toward ensuring that your claim will be thoroughly (and most importantly) independently.
Hire A Storm Damage Claim Attorney
Just when you’ve all but given up hope that your claim will EVER be fairly adjusted, you can always count on an experienced litigation attorney to help get it done for you. By hiring an attorney, they will negotiate your claim your behalf so you won’t ever have to deal with the adjuster who unfairly adjusted your claim.
