Houston Flood Damages Attorney
Texas suffers from more than its fair share of storms and flooding; because of its location Houston in particular is prone to floods, either from thunderstorms or the occasional hurricane.
The devastation caused by recent floods in Houston and other areas of the state have been tragic; leaving water damage, structural damage, contamination and business loss in their wake. Even more tragically, lives have been lost.
An important thing to remember is that most flood insurance policies require that a claim be made within 60 days of the loss, so flood victims should notify their insurance company of the loss and work with an adjuster to determine the value of their property loss in order to make a claim.
Some types of water damage may not be covered by your insurance policy, including property damage caused by flooding. Without insurance coverage, homeowners can suffer a devastating loss when attempting to restore their property to its original state.
Even if the insurance policy does cover the type of water damage you may have suffered, it is often difficult to deal with the insurance companies to receive the full cost of restoring and fixing the damage or loss of personal property. An insurance company may only agree to cover the fair market value of the property, instead of the complete replacement cost.

When someone suffers an injury as the result of somebody else's action or negligence it may be expected that the person or their insurance company will step up and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that rarely happens.
In fact, people often refuse to accept responsibility and the insurance companies themselves profit from under compensating injury victims. Insurance companies will typically do everything they can to take advantage of you and to effect the lowest possible settlement, while attempting to elicit statements from you that will damage your position if you ultimately decide to go to the courts.

Holding Companies Liable:
Companies that manufacture or sell products to the public are legally responsible to ensure that they are safe. If their products cause injuries or illnesses to consumers, victims have legal recourse to obtain compensation for their damages by filing claims under the product liability law. This includes claims against pharmaceutical companies for dangerous drugs, drug recalls, and pharmaceutical injuries.
