FAQS About Wind And Hail Damage Claims
Below are some frequently asked questions about Wind and Hail Damage Claims:
What do I need to file a wind or hail damage claim with my insurance company?
You will need evidence that the damage your home sustained came from wind or hail.
Common signs of wind and hail damage include:
- Lifted, torn, broken, or missing shingles
- Fallen tree limbs or uprooted trees
- Impact strike marks from hail
- Dents from hail, especially on metal roofing features or vinyl siding or fencing
- Broken windows from debris strikes
- Broken or loose gutters and downspouts
Get an inspection if you suspect your home sustained damage during a recent storm. Roofing contractors with certifications in home inspections will often be willing to mark and take photos of the damage they identify during inspection of your home and roof. A wind and hail damage attorney with our firm can use their reports to fight for approval of your claim with your insurance company.
How can a Houston wind damage lawyer help me manage my claim after a storm?
Call our McLaurin Law wind claims attorney if your home shows signs of wind damage after a hurricane, tropical system, or particularly windy day. We can help you file your claim with your insurance company and represent you when the insurance company’s claims adjuster has additional questions.
Many insurance companies try to deny or underpay claims based on arbitrary rebuttals. For example, if you have both wind and hail damage, they may reject a portion of the claim because you filed a wind claim.
How can a hail damage lawyer help me get my roof repaired or replaced?
Hail damage often affects roofs more than any other part of the home. Sometimes hail only damages part of a roof, requiring a simple repair. Other times, you’ll have enough roof damage to require a full roof replacement. A McLaurin Law attorney can work closely with your roofer and insurance company to fight for full claim approval.
What if my insurance company still denies my claim?
Insurance companies often deny claims despite ample evidence of legitimate storm damage. When this happens, the next step is to file a lawsuit against the insurance company with the guidance of a wind and hail damage claims attorney.
