Sinkholes prompt battle between residents and insurer

People in San Antonio rely on their homes to not only protect them from the elements, but also to provide them and their families with a safe haven from which they can escape the stresses of their jobs and other responsibilities. When damages to their homes render them incapable of providing those benefits, that reliance shifts to their insurers to correct said damages and restore residents' peace-of-mind. One can imagine, then, just how disheartening it may be for one in such a situation to learn that his or her insurer has no intention of providing the relief he or she is seeking. 

Late release of information deemed bad faith by judge

One the chief complaints that many have when dealing with insurance companies in San Antonio is the time that it often takes to get claims resolved. While at face value, it may seem as though insurers are justified in being thorough in their investigation into claims, the notion that such intensive examination may only be a stall tactic is ever-present. When that examination results in a claim denial, one might be justified in accusing his or her insurer of operating in bad faith

The details of insurance claims in the wake of Harvey

With the billions of dollars in damage caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, it comes as no surprise that countless Texas residents are now in need of repairs on homes, cars and businesses. Those left in the aftermath may wonder what property will receive insurance coverage. Just as with any type of damage, it is generally wise to look at all of the fine print in order to put the best foot forward. 

Assessing restoration needs after home damage

Texas is clearly no stranger to weather extremes such as hurricanes and flooding. After Hurricanes Harvey and Irma took their toll last August, countless homeowners were left to assess the damage and start anew. Yet for many, one headache can turn into another when construction contractors introduce more trouble than solutions.

Lawsuit dismissed after credit union and insurer settle

Businesses and individuals in San Antonio rely heavily on their insurers to offer them coverage when unanticipated problems arise. That coverage is not in place to allow them to profit in any way, but to rather recover from whatever financial losses they sustain. While most people understand that insurance companies do not stay in business by paying out on every claim that crosses their collective desks, the expectation is still there that, absent any questionable circumstances, such providers will honor the stipulations of their contracts. When that does not happen, subscribers may be justified in alleging that their insurers are operating in bad faith. 

What if you are pressured to accept a partial payment?

Accidents, incidents, injuries or illnesses in San Antonio that require you to deal with insurance companies can be quite traumatic. Your desire, then, to have the whole ordeal over with is understandable. Unfortunately, insurers understand this, and will therefore often look for ways to try and encourage your frustration and worry in an attempt to take advantage of you. Thus, you can rest assured that the initial settlement you are offered is likely less than what you may be obligated to collect. 

After the hurricanes: rebuilding homes, but with a challenge

When it comes to home repair, finding the right contractor can make all the difference between mediocre construction performance and an absolute dream home. Yet for countless Texas residents, this is likely the last task to check off the list. After hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many have struggled to find contractors to make basic and vital repairs to their homes.

In flood-prone areas, why is insurance so rare?

In the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, countless Texans continue to grapple with the complex insurance laws in the state. Yet despite the financial predicament the natural disasters have introduced, many are concerned about the details of future flood insurance. Why do so many residents in flood-prone areas go without this type of coverage? As the laws continuously change, an equal amount of controversy surrounding flood insurance follows.

When home construction goes wrong

Moving into a dream home is at the top of the list for a large majority of Americans. The number of new homes across the nation has skyrocketed, turning that goal into a reality for many families. Yet there is a darker side to this promising statistic: that of ineffective construction. When no one takes the blame for a defect in a Texas property, families are often left with problems that overshadow the joys of a new home sweet home.

In the wake of hurricane season, will insurance be the answer?

At this point in the year, most of the nation is aware of the catastrophes that swept across areas in Texas earlier this fall season. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma left countless citizens without basic necessities--and, as a result, in significant danger. In the aftermath of these disasters, many are left sorting through the details of insurance claims. The details of insurance in such situations can be complex and overwhelming. Some are hopeful that adequate funding will come to the rescue, while others are skeptical that the thousands of homeowners left to sift through the damage will lack insurance coverage.
