Goliad Hurricane Harvey Flooding
In comparison to other South Texas cities, many residents of Goliad might feel they were fortunate to not have had the level of destruction that neighboring regions saw after the recent hurricane. With that said, there were numerous homes and businesses that have sustained damages caused by the recent storm.
Goliad Hurricane Harvey flooding does not need to be extreme to cause problems for residents attempting to now recover from the aftermath of the storm. While power was restored relatively quickly for most Goliad residences and businesses by diligent Texas AEP and other power restoration workers, the destruction has left many in the community to still relying on each other and relief organizations for support. Many able-bodied residents have even volunteered in those relief efforts to help. Relief is generally expected to be short-lived, however, and only fully available at the height of the community’s needs. Beyond that time frame, most individuals or their families will have to find their own means of support.
By now you may be feeling overwhelmed and could benefit from the help of an attorney.

Some locals might be able to recall previous years where they have dealt with the blows from Mother Nature’s wrath. In its history, Goliad has often had to contend with flooding or other disasters such as tornadoes that once devastated the area. Communities along the San Antonio, Guadalupe, and Comal River watersheds, along with several others, have seen their share of flooding, debris and pollution.
After this summer’s hurricane season, there were many reports of structural damages due to wind, downed trees, and flooding from the heavy rainfall of such a massive storm. You might have experienced Goliad Hurricane Harvey flooding in your home or business. If so, you could be entitled to seek damages. Even if this has not been your first encounter with natural disaster, our attorneys are aware of the many difficulties these circumstances present people and their families in getting their lives back in order after a hurricane.
Many residents may not feel their damages are large enough to file a claim. However, it is important to note that recovering from flood damage is often an expensive process, and your estimate may reflect the real costs. It is not just about drying everything out; for example, even though Goliad experienced minor flooding compared to other surrounding areas, when flood waters are mixed with negative elements that flow around in it, everything in its path can become contaminated.
People are often ready to quickly clean up and move forward, but our lawyers know that a well-intended clean-up effort is oftentimes a bit of a Catch-22. On one hand, cleaning up debris and clearing away damaged items or tossing spoiled foods seems to be the first thing that should be done. However, insurance companies generally need proof of damages that you might have incurred as a result of a storm. A simple thing like wanting to clear debris and make a home livable again can stymie one’s ability to get a timely return on their claim, especially when attempting to deal with insurance companies already overwhelmed with thousands of claims.
