At Burwell Nebout Trial Lawyers, much of our advocacy involves fighting for the financial and legal rights of Texas homeowners who have sustained costly hail-related damage to their homes, property, and other possessions. As one of the most common forms of extreme weather in Texas, hail is responsible for causing many millions of dollars in annual insured losses across the state.
In Texas, hail formation is typically associated with severe thunderstorms. Hailstones are variably-sized balls of ice that form around dust and debris within violent thunderclouds. When hailstones are too heavy to be supported by the winds within these clouds, they fall to the ground and damage anything in their way.
Hailstones may range in size from tiny pea-sized pellets to massive grapefruit sized or larger bombs. Even hailstones as small as a quarter-inch in diameter can cause serious damage to your home, vehicles, and other outdoor items of value.
Valuable items that commonly sustain hail damage include:
- Vehicles parked outdoors
- Decks, porches and patios
Since homeowners insurance companies often try to avoid meeting their obligations to cover the cost of hail-related damages, you may need an experienced legal ally to help you maximize your claim.
If your property, home, or possessions sustain damage in a destructive hailstorm or other extreme weather event, call Burwell Nebout Trial Lawyers right away. We will stand up to your insurance company and fight for your rights to get them to pay for the full extent of the damages.
