Homeowner's Insurance Disputes

Your home is the physical embodiment of your family and your personal life, and it's also often the largest financial asset a Houston resident has. You want to protect it and your investment, so you wisely purchased a homeowner's insurance policy to cover you in case something out of your control damages or destroys your home. Sometimes, though, after one of those incidents happens, you discover your insurance company resists your attempts to recover.

Incidents Leading to Homeowner's Claims in Harris County

Your insurance policy should outline your coverage and what kind of incidents your policy pays for. Some common incidents leading to claims include:

  • Flood: From a hurricane, tropical storm or one of Houston's infamous rainstorms, flooding can cause extensive water damage, including mold and leaky roofs and windows.
  • Pipe Bursts: A burst pipe may cause extensive structural damage that can affect the integrity of your home.
  • Electrical Fire: Faulty wiring can cause fires that completely destroy your house.
  • Arson and Vandalism: The criminal act of a person setting fire to your home or otherwise damaging or defacing it.
  • Wind Damage: Tornados, hurricanes and strong winds can damage your roof, rip it off or send trees flying into your home.
  • Foundation Damage: Extreme weather conditions, including drought, may damage the foundation of your home.
  • Burglary: Your policy may cover theft.

Non-Cooperation from Texas Insurance Company

Your insurance company may deny your claim altogether. They may claim that your policy does not cover the incident that lead to the damage. Their claims can seems like quite a stretch of common sense. For instance, they may claim that your policy covers floods, but not water that has accumulated from the skies after your home had extensive water damage from a hurricane. Insurance policies are frequently written in the insurance company's favor, to allow them to make arguments like this.

They may make an offer far below what you need. They could undervalue your property or use an estimate from a cheap, low-quality contractor that will not property rebuild your home. They may unnecessarily delay payments by demanding excessive paperwork and records, or by simply taking their time. They can even claim that your claim is fraudulent and attempt to retroactively cancel your policy.

Your Houston insurance lawyer can see through the legal arguments the insurance company tries to present of why they deny your homeowner's insurance claim. He can use independent estimates to determine a more fair amount that the insurance company should be offering, and negotiate with the company on your behalf. Most insurance companies do not want to go to court, and will offer a more reasonable settlement once they know they're dealing with a homeowner's insurance attorney. However, if they don't act more reasonably, the Houston attorneys at Wilhite & Associates, P.C., are not afraid to take them to court.
