Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Ike: Learn from History

Philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist George Santayana once wrote that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." As a business owner only now making a claim for property damage or business interruption loss, you may not yet be fully focused on the idea that your claim very well may not be addressed appropriately by an insurance company.

Texas business owners need only look back nine years to 2008 and see how insurance companies failed to appropriately and fairly deal with insurance claims submitted by business owners in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike. Damages following Hurricane Ike amounted to approximately $29.5 billion.

Estimated damages arising from Hurricane Harvey are thought to be in the neighborhood of between $86 billion and $108 billion. If damages from Harvey eclipse $108 billion, it will become the most costly weather event in U.S. history, outpacing Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

You need to take heed of what happened to thousands of consumers, including many business owners in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

Texas Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act

The state of Texas has a law known as the Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act. The law prohibits certain types of conduct by insurance companies when a consumer files a claim. This includes a business pursuing a claim for damages arising from a weather event like Hurricane Harvey.

Pursuant to the provisions of the law, examples of unfair claims settlement practices include failing to settle a bona fide claim in a timely manner as well as abuse of the claim investigatory process. There are other examples unfair claims settle practices enumerated in the law as well.

The reality is that the Texas Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act is a complicated law. It is not a statute that permits you to pursue litigation because you identify violations of the Act by an insurance carrier in a situation involving your business attempting to obtain fair compensation following a storm like Hurricane Harvey.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
