Refugio Hurricane Harvey Insurance Claims
Refugio, Texas, has a population of about 3,000 people, many of whom evacuated as soon as Harvey seemed headed in a trajectory towards their town. Although Refugio did not suffer the extensive damage seen in coastal towns like Rockport, Harvey did blow down trees and destroy electricity and power sources in the region, leaving thousands of victims without power in their homes.
Most of the destruction left behind by Hurricane Harvey in Refugio consisted of falling debris and trees, as well as hazards like falling or damaged power lines and infrastructures. If you were affected by Hurricane Harvey and you live in Refugio, Texas, you deserve full recompense for your loss and damage. The lawyers at Carabin & Shaw want to assist you in obtaining this compensation.
It is important that victims of Harvey understand that most homeowner’s insurance policies do not include flood and water damage coverage. Auto insurance policies do typically cover issues like water damage, but homeowner’s policies on most properties in Texas fail to provide any coverage for such flooding damages. This means that many victims affected by Hurricane Harvey’s destruction may be forced to fight for themselves in obtaining compensation for loss and damages. In these cases, legal guidance can be the difference between starting over and starting again.
After a storm of Harvey’s magnitude, insurance companies and insurers may take days or even weeks to physically visit your property and assess all the damage. In the meantime, there are certain precautionary steps you can take in the interim to help preserve the strength of your claim until your insurance company can assist you. These include but are not limited to:
- Record everything, take pictures and video of damages, and record dates and transcripts of conversations with insurers.
- Save your receipts from all related expenses, including those related to evacuation, preparation, and restoration.
- Prevent further damage to your property that might invalidate your claim.
- Never accept the insurer’s first offer upon initial assessment, and be wary of fraudulent repair contractors and offers that are too good to be true.
