Aside from helping family, friends and colleagues clean up their storm damaged homes we are offering free confidential advice on the following Hurricane Harvey issues:

  • Advising homeowners and business owners as to their legal rights related to the controlled flooding (see inverse condemnation below) from the Addicks and Barker Reservoirs as well as the excessive release of storm waters from Lake Conroe.
  • Assisting Houston area homeowners and business owners with filing flood, wind and other covered storm damage, as well a business interruption insurance claims.
  • Assisting homeowners and business owners in situations where they paid premiums for a policy, but they are now being told that there is not an insurance policy in place.  This often occurs when an insurance agent accepts a premium, but neglects to purchase the policy of insurance.

Hurricane Harvey Insurance Claim Denials

In the aftermath of a disaster like Hurricane Harvey, insurance companies will field thousands of claims and attempt to mitigate the effect of those claims on their bottom line. To a policyholder, this means the potential for a claim to be evaluated unfairly and in bad faith. Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, you should be aware that not only does your insurance company have a duty to evaluate your claim in good faith, but that you have options if the insurance company does not pay or under pays your claim. If you have made a claim for wind, flood, or storm damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, and your insurance company has denied your claim, our law firm is here to help.

Inverse Condemnation

The Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees property owners that if the government takes your property for a public use, you must receive just compensation. That’s what happened when the Army Corps of Engineers and the San Jacinto River Authority made the choice to flood homes by releasing water from the reservoirs. The government made the choice to save other areas of Houston and to protect the dams. Home and business owners affected by the releases at Addicks and Barker reservoirs and Lake Conroe likely have a claim called inverse condemnation. Property owners who made it through Hurricane Harvey intact, but were flooded by the decisions to make releases, need to contact a lawyer to recover just compensation for their property.
