If you are like many home and business owners, you may have already found
yourself doing battle with an insurance company when it comes to your
Hurricane Harvey insurance claim. Your insurance company may have told
you that your property damage insurance policy does not cover flood damage.

one based on what is known legally as inverse condemnation. A tenacious

way across Texas, releases of water was authorized by the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers from the Barker and the Addicks reservoirs. The result of
this releases was the flooding of homes and businesses that had been unscathed
by Hurricane Harvey. If your home or business was damaged because of flooding
that resulted from the release of water from one or another of these reservoirs,
you may have a legal claim to be made.
As it stands, the law prevents you from filing claim or lawsuit for damages
to your home or business because of the release of water by the U.S. Corps
of Army Engineers. However, you may have a claim or cause of action against
at least two other entities: the City of Houston and the Harris County
Flood Control District. With the assistance of a Hurricane Harvey flood
damage lawyer from The Doan Law Firm, you may be able to pursue an inverse
condemnation claim against the City of Houston and the Harris County Flood

the reservoirs, contact a Hurricane Harvey inverse condemnation flood
