Texas Freeze Water Damage Claim FAQ

You do have a duty to cooperate with your insurance to an extent. If your insurance company is asking for information that's relevant to your claim, you should provide as much as you can so that your claim can be processed quickly.

NOTHING IS HAPPENING WITH MY FROZEN PIPE BURST CLAIM BECAUSE THE CAUSE OF THE WATER DAMAGE IS UNDER INVESTIGATION. WHAT CAN I DO?
Insurance companies sometimes use unnecessary investigation and If the cause of the water that damaged your property is under investigation, you may feel more like a suspect than a victim who has experienced a devastating loss.

We can step forward and protect your interests during the investigation, in filing your claim, and even in disputing a denial or low settlement offer.

MY INSURANCE COMPANY PAID TO HAVE MY PROPERTY RESTORED AFTER WATER DAMAGE, BUT I'M NOT SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS. CAN I DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?
Water leakage from busted pipes can cause considerable damage to a structure and all of the property inside. If your insurance company paid to have your belongings and home restored after a receiving water damage but you still see visible signs of water damage or feel that repairs and remediation were inadequate in any way, you may be entitled to additional compensation. The insurance company is obligated to restore your property to the condition it was in prior to the water damage in a consistent and uniform fashion. They can't replace damaged flooring with mismatched materials. You can't be expected to live with shoddy repairs. Talk to your lawyer about reopening your claim and getting your home restored properly.
