Shocking Statistics About Hurricane Harvey

If you are like most people impacted by Hurricane Harvey, you likely have heard about a so-called 100-year flood. Hurricane Harvey is not a 100-year flood. It is a virtually unprecedented 1000-year flood. In other words, in the history of the United States, in the history of colonial America, the continent has never seen a violent, devastating storm like Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey dropped over 50 inches of rain in some parts of Texas, rainfall that broke records from coast-to-coast, and from Mexico to Canada. The average rainfall in Houston in September, the month Harvey shellacked the state, is between 4 and 5 inches.

The storm dropped a shocking 20 trillion gallons of water across the Lone Star State. In a major report to the Texas Legislature several years ago, the Texas Water Development Board that the total, combined rate of water usage across the state annually is about 5.2 trillion gallons of water. This includes all water used for residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural purposes.

Exact figures will not be available for some time, perhaps even years. Nonetheless, insurance industry experts and others project that the total amount of property loss caused by flooding associated with Hurricane Harvey is likely to be between $65 and $75 billion. This contrasts with approximately $71 billion in losses associated with Hurricane Katrina a dozen years earlier.

These facts hit home to you personally if you have suffered damage to your home or other property because of Hurricane Harvey. An early estimate is that a homeowner who sustained damages because of Harvey could face an average of $70,000 in losses. 50 percent of homeowners have suffered losses above this amount.

Hurricane Harvey: Wind Versus Water Damage

A considerable number of individuals like you who file insurance claims for Hurricane Harvey losses initially will face denials from their insurance companies. Insurers will contend that the damage to a homeowner's property was caused by water and flooding and not the wind of the hurricane itself.

Even if your residence, or other property, sustained damage because of wind and water, your insurance company very well may try to deny your claim by invoking a Texas law that permits what are known as anti-concurrent causation clauses in insurance policies. These provisions allow an insurance company to deny a claim when a covered and an excluded weather-related event occur simultaneously, damaging your home. In other words, although wind may have damaged your home, if water has also caused damage, your insurance company can attempt to deny your entire claim for compensation.

A Hurricane Harvey flood claim lawyer from our firm will tirelessly fight to ensure that you obtain appropriate compensation for your losses. Our legal team will explore all possible avenues to optimize financial recovery in your case, including how water releases ordered by Harris County during the storm may be deemed an underlying cause of the damages sustained to your home.

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.
