Indeed, you may be in the position to pursue what is known as a Hurricane Harvey inverse condemnation flood claim.

Upwards to a half million insurance claims are expected to be filed as a result of Hurricane Harvey. You may be finding yourself in the crosshairs with your insurance company, getting nowhere with your claim. If that is the case, you need to take immediate action to protect your legal interests, including retaining a Hurricane Harvey insurance claim lawyer. An attorney from the legal team at The Doan Office at (833) FLOOD-LAWYER stands ready to meet with you to discuss your rights.

Hurricane Harvey "Flood Control" and Your Home or Business

Hurricane Harvey resulted in the most significant amount of rainfall to ever occur in the history of the United States. Over 50 inches of rain fell in some parts of South Texas, including in Houston, as Hurricane Harvey ravaged.

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.

No matter what may or may not be going on with the claim you've filed with your own insurance company, you may be able to pursue a separate one based on what is known legally as inverse condemnation. A tenacious Hurricane Harvey inverse condemnation flood claim lawyer from our firm can meet with you any time convenient to you to ascertain your rights in regard to this type of claim.

As you likely know from media reports, as Hurricane Harvey was making its 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 Control District.

Hurricane Harvey Inverse Condemnation Flood Claim

Inverse condemnation occurs when a governmental entity, the City of Houston and the Harris County Flood Control District, takes, destroys, to even temporarily impairs private property without appropriate, just compensation. If you are among the thousands of home and business owners whose residences or commercial properties were flooded because of the water releases from the reservoirs, contact a Hurricane Harvey inverse condemnation flood claim lawyer from our firm at (833) FLOOD-LAWYER.

In the final analysis, you may be blocked from obtaining compensation for damage to your home or business caused by flooding, but you may be entitled to compensation based on the doctrine of inverse condemnation. This does represent a complicated area of the law. You truly best protect and assert your legal interests in regard to a Hurricane Harvey inverse condemnation flood claim with skilled, experienced, and tenacious legal counsel, like a lawyer from The Doan Law Firm.

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.
