Storm’s Damage Affected
The spring of 2012 brought major hail storms to the South Texas communities of McAllen, Mission, San Benito, San Juan, Alamo, Edinburg, Weslaco and Pharr. The storm pounded the area for 45 minutes to an hour. Commercial and residential properties sustained major damage due to the reported baseball-sized hail.
Millions of Dollars in Damages, Few Settlements
A warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service said the storm had peak gusts of 75 MPH accompanied by hail up to three inches in diameter. The speed and force of the hail caused extensive damage to residential and commercial properties. Many commercial properties suffered exterior wall and roof damage along with damage to roof-mounted HVAC units. Despite clear evidence of the storm’s magnitude, many insurance companies have reverted to bad faith tactics to avoid paying these claims. Yet even though many policyholders have not had their legitimate claims paid, they do not have to accept these improper tactics from the insurance industry; there is legal recourse.
