San Antonio Hail Damage Claims - You Need To Be Aware of Your Rights
Was your home or business, here in San Antonio or in the surrounding areas, damaged in one of the recent hailstorms? If so, rest assured you are not alone. Thousands of homes and vehicles were impacted by the storm resulting in billions of dollars in damages. With that many people affected, a number of insurance agencies are having a hard time meeting the needs of their clients, as they certainly have more claims than adjustors to meet the demand. In fact with such a large number of claims being made, the insurance companies have taken a major financial blow. For that reason alone, many insurance companies will do their best to under cut the value in dollar amounts that they owe to you or the property owner. This is why a seasoned Carabin & Shaw San Antonio hail damage claim attorney is the most valuable asset to have on your side.
Did you know the 2016 San Antonio hailstorm was one of the most disastrous storms that Texas has ever seen? With the high influx of claims insurance companies could not met the demand. As a result insurance adjustors were flown in from all over the United States to help expedite the process for claim holders. However, even with the adjustors being on site those customers who elected to have their vehicles repaired still have to face long waits to have their car serviced here in San Antonio and the surrounding area collision centers. At the time of the storm, appointments were being booked well into 2017 and it would be sad (but most likely accurate) to assume but most of those cars and homes are still awaiting repair today.
