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.
When it comes to protecting your interests, and those of your business
in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, you need to take a proactive stance.
You need to take heed of what happened to thousands of consumers, including
many business owners in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike. You need to get
a fighter on your team, a Hurricane Harvey unfair claim settlement attorney

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.
The complexities of the law underscore the need for you to seek professional
assistance from a Hurricane Harvey unfair claim settlement attorney, like
a member of the legal team at our firm.
