Hail Damage Claims in Texas
Hail is a type of frozen precipitation that sometimes occurs during strong to severe thunderstorms at any time of the year. It forms when updrafts become strong enough to carry droplets of water above the freezing level, and a hailstone is formed. The stone grows larger and eventually falls to the ground when it becomes too heavy for the updrafts to support. Hailstones might be small (the average stone ranges from pea- to marble-sized), but the damage hail causes each year in Texas is immense. Each year, hail causes costly damage to aircraft, cars, homes, crops, and livestock all across Texas. Hail damage claims in Texas are thus extensive.
As a matter of fact, dangerous hail events outnumber tornadoes 5 to 1 in the United States. While it might seem counterintuitive for ice to fall from the sky at higher rates during the hottest months of the year, hailstorms are most common during the summer. Unfortunately, there’s no way to stop hail from falling, so have an experienced bad weather attorney on your side. The lawyers at Carabin & Shaw have extensive experience and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
The National Weather Service considers hail “severe” when it reaches one inch in diameter, at which point it is large enough to cause serious damage to people and their property. Marble-sized hailstones fall at speeds of about 20 miles per hour, but larger pieces of hail can reach speeds of nearly 100 miles per hour. Hailstones can shatter windows, dent cars, and – in some extreme cases – total a vehicle completely.
If you live in Texas and your home or business was damaged in a recent hailstorm, you probably expect that damage to be covered under your homeowners insurance. But what you might not know is that sometimes, homeowners insurance companies will deny the coverage if the damage was caused by hail. In these cases, your only hope of getting the money you deserve is to seek help from a qualified hail damage attorney.
