Steps to Take After a Hailstorm

Hail can come in all sizes, and although bigger hail is obviously more damaging, even small hail can destroy your property. A short-lived hail shower can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home and vehicle, which is why it is important to have an insurance company that will help you repair the destruction. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies are trustworthy, and your insurer may attempt to wrongfully deny your claim when you truly deserve benefits.

If your property was damaged due to hail and your insurance company has been uncooperative in reimbursing you properly, you may need the assistance of a skilled Dallas insurance attorney. To learn more about how we can help, contact the firm of Smith Kendall, PLLC, today at 214-361-6124.

What Should You Do After a Hailstorm?

Once the hailstorm has passed, you should take the following steps:

  • Check your roof for damage and cover any holes that could lead to water leaks
  • Check your vehicle to see if it has been dented or if there is cracked or shattered glass
  • Remove any glass from the inside of your vehicle
  • Cover any damaged areas on your vehicle that could allow water to enter

After you have secured your property, you will need to contact your insurance company and have an adjuster inspect the damage. In order to protect yourself from unfair assessments by an adjuster, make sure to notate your conversation with the adjuster and describe how he or she inspected your property.
