My wife and I thought we were heading into a complicated legal odyssey with a destroyed commercial property until we hired Bill Kendall. His sustained focus and hard work was so effective that we had a great settlement within hours of the first deposition.

Multi-Family Property Claim (Dallas, TX)
Our large hotel was severely damaged by hail. After significant delays by the insurance company, our claim was denied. We hired Bill Kendall and Grisham & Kendall soon after. Through Bill’s efforts during our lawsuit, we were able to reach a favorable settlement close to trial. We would certainly recommend Grisham & Kendall, PLLC to any property owner whose insurance company isn’t treating them fairly.

Brownsville Property Damage Lawyer FAQs

In Brownsville, homeowners’ insurance typically covers damages caused by windstorms, hail, and lightning. However, coverage for flood damage generally requires a separate flood insurance policy, which is crucial given Brownsville’s susceptibility to hurricanes and tropical storms.

Residents of Brownsville should report property damage to their insurance company as soon as it’s safe to do so. Document all damage extensively with photos and videos, fill out all required claim forms thoroughly, and maintain detailed records of all communications with your insurer.

After experiencing flood damage in Brownsville, ensure personal safety first, then document all damage before starting clean-up efforts. This includes taking photographs and videos of the damage. Report the damage to your flood insurance provider promptly and follow their specific guidelines for filing a claim.

In Brownsville, after a hurricane, your insurance company will send an adjuster to inspect the damage. They will evaluate the extent and cause of the damage to determine how much compensation you are entitled to based on your policy details.

If you disagree with an adjuster’s assessment in Brownsville, you can request a re-evaluation or hire an independent adjuster for a second opinion. We at Grisham & Kendall can assist you in finding a qualified professional to ensure a fair assessment of the damage.

The timeline for processing a property damage claim in Brownsville can vary widely but generally takes from a few weeks to several months, depending on the severity of the disaster and the backlog of claims the insurer is handling. Effective communication and organized documentation can help speed up this process.

In Brownsville, filing a claim for windstorm damage might not necessarily result in an immediate increase in your premiums, but it could affect your premiums if you have multiple claims within a short period. The total cost of the claims and the nature of the events leading to the claims can also play a role.

If your claim is denied in Brownsville, review the reasons for denial provided by your insurer. Gather additional documentation and evidence that may support your claim and consider appealing the decision. Our team at Grisham & Kendall is experienced in handling such appeals and can provide you with the necessary support and guidance.

Yes, in Brownsville, it is advisable to make necessary temporary repairs to prevent further damage. Keep all receipts and records of these repairs as they may be reimbursable under your insurance policy. However, ensure that these repairs do not alter the adjuster’s ability to accurately assess the original extent of the damage.

In Brownsville, your deductible is the amount you must pay out-of-pocket before your insurance begins to cover the costs. For hurricane or flood damage claims, this deductible can be a set dollar amount or a percentage of your home’s value, depending on your policy terms.

Homeowners in Brownsville should prepare detailed documentation, including before and after photos, videos of the damage, a written inventory of damaged or lost items, repair estimates, and receipts for any expenditures related to temporary repairs.

In Brownsville, you generally have the right to choose your own contractors for repairs unless your insurance policy specifies otherwise. It’s advisable to choose contractors who have experience in dealing with insurance repairs to ensure that the work meets the insurer’s standards and requirements.
