Houston Homeowners Insurance Attorney
Most of Texas sits in the heart of Tornado Alley, the swath of the United States in which tornadoes occur with the greatest frequency; in fact, according to the National Climatic Data Center, Texas has experienced more reported tornadoes than any other state.
Because of the frequency of tornadoes in Texas and the destruction they can cause, many homeowners choose to add tornado coverage to their homeowners insurance policies. Unfortunately, it is after large-scale disasters such as tornadoes that some insurance providers utilize unethical methods in order to limit what they must otherwise pay their policyholders.
Houston insurance claims attorney Tony Malley has helped numerous Texas families pursue the financial compensation they need to cope with damages after insurance companies have acted in bad faith in denying legitimate claims. Examples of bad faith related to tornado damage claims include:
- Ignoring evidence that supports policyholders’ claims
- Requesting burdensome documentation not otherwise required by the policy
- Failing to investigate and assess damage claims in a timely fashion
- Failing to promptly pay valid claims
- Short-changing tornado damage estimates and offering inadequate settlements
- Failing to notify policyholders in writing of reasons for claim denials
Many tornado damage claim denials are valid, and the amount and types of coverage vary greatly. Because contesting denied or unfairly limited insurance claims is a complex process, it’s important to work with a lawyer who has a proven record of success in insurance litigation.
With offices in Houston and Beaumont, Texas, attorney Tony Malley has helped a number of families relieve the stress associated with fighting with insurance companies and seek the money they need to rebuild their homes and lives.
