On Sunday, November 17, a series of tornadoes devastated Washington, Illinois, as they flattened structures throughout the city and left several people dead.

Twelve states were damaged by the unexpected storm activity, but Illinois was affected the most. Commercial and residential structures in Washington, a town with a population of 16,000, were severely damaged by the tornadoes.

In the wake of the storm, authorities, rescuers, and insurance adjusters scouted the affected areas. State Trooper Dustin Pierce mentioned that one of the passing tornadoes was nearly one mile wide.

Unfortunately, receiving insurance payments after a serious storm can take a while. Insurance companies become inundated with claims, which can cause backlogging and delays. If you need help collecting insurance payments, especially from an insurance company that is acting in bad faith, after a serious storm in the Dallas area, contact the lawyers of Smith Kendall, PLLC, at 214-361-6124 to see what we can do for you.
