Wind damage to your home or business may include not only extensive roof damage, but also significant interior water damage caused by openings to the building by high winds. A structure’s foundations can also be damaged due to extreme winds associated with storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. If you’ve suffered extensive damage to your property following severe storm-related winds, you will need to file a claim with your insurance company, as well as take steps to protect your property from further damage, if necessary.
Sadly, insurers often find reasons to delay, deny, and undervalue insurance claims. This is unfair to individuals who have suffered losses and were expecting to receive the insurance coverage they’ve been paying premiums for. The Dallas wind damage insurance lawyers of Smith Kendall, PLLC, have experience helping people whose insurance claims have been wrongfully denied.
In both residential and commercial property wind damage claims, the insurance companies will likely rely on the conclusions made by causation and damages experts who typically work almost exclusively for the insurance industry. While some damage is difficult to disregard even by an insurance company, if your claim has been denied or underpaid, you will need to hire your own wind damage experts if you intend on disputing the insurer’s claims decision. The wind damage and loss attorneys at Smith Kendall, PLLC, have developed relationships with qualified professionals and experts who can thoroughly and accurately analyze your wind damage claim so that your insurance company can see a second, independent assessment of the damages to your property.
If our client’s insurance company refuses to take an honest second look at a claim, we will sue. As opposed to the insurance company’s hired defense attorneys, we work on a contingency basis, which means you don’t owe Smith Kendall, PLLC, any money either for attorney fees or expenses unless and until we force the insurance company to pay on your claim.
If your insurance company is treating you unfairly by failing to accurately and honestly adjuster your wind damage insurance claim, we may be able to help. Please call the Dallas property windstorm damage claim lawyers of Smith Kendall, PLLC, at (214) 361-6124 to discuss your claim.
