Active 2012 Season for Valley
The spring of 2012 proved to be a busier hail and wind storm season for the Rio Grande Valley than the five years prior. Seven episodes affected large parts of the Valley and caused property damage in excess of $500 million. Many commercial and residential property owners have not settled with their insurance companies and have instead been subjected to bad faith practices. Episodes of severe weather resulting in massive amounts of property damage often spur insurance companies to go on the offensive; when they do, property owners need an advocate for their interests in order to achieve a fair resolution.
Delay, Dispute, Deny
Many commercial and residential property owners in the Rio Grande Valley have not been compensated by their insurance company for their damage claim. An insurance company may delay timely payments, dispute the damage and value or completely deny a legitimate claim. An insurance company may also attempt to use pre-existing damage as an excuse to lower the settlement whether that damage was pre-existent or not. Insurance companies may also start their claims process anticipating litigation and act accordingly using attorneys and other legal maneuvers to intimidate a policyholder into settling a claim.
