While adverse weather situations can arise any time during the year, commercial property is especially susceptible to severe storm damage between the months of April and July all across Texas. From tornadoes to thunderstorms with high winds and hail, your property may be at risk of damage caused by these powerful storms. However, insurance can help protect you. Frustratingly, though, if your insurance company fails to pay rightful damages, you may have to fight back with a lawsuit.
After a storm, contact your insurance company about any damage. The insurance company will send an adjuster to inspect the damage, typically the roof and exterior of your home. The adjuster will then catalogue the damage and submit it to the insurance company for evaluation. The insurance company will then get back to you detailing what and how they will pay you, which will depend on your homeowners policy.
