Hail Damage Claims in Texas
HOUSTON INSURANCE CLAIM ATTORNEY
Hailstorms can result in severe property damage to homes, cars, aircraft, and businesses. Hail is a form of precipitation that occurs when updrafts in thunderstorms carry raindrops upward into extremely cold areas of the atmosphere where they freeze into balls of ice. Hail can vary from very small pea sized particles to golf ball or even grapefruit size stones. Hailstones that are ¾ of an inch or larger can cause significant property damage. Heavy rains and wind usually accompany hailstorms and can result in further damages and losses.
Insurance should cover the costs of repairing or replacing hail damage property, but insurers sometimes attempt to avoid paying out all or part of policyholders’ claims. If you are having difficulty obtaining rightful compensation for your losses, do not hesitate to hire a Houston insurance claim attorney from our team.

THE IMPACT OF HAIL DAMAGE
Hailstones form in certain weather conditions where there are thunderstorm clouds, strong upward air currents, large water droplets and below freezing temperatures in a significant portion of the clouds. Hailstones grow by colliding with super cooled water drops. Super cooled water will freeze on contact with ice crystals, frozen raindrops, dust or some other nuclei. Thunderstorms that have a strong updraft keep lifting the hail up to the top of the cloud where they encounter more super cooled water and continue to grow. The hail falls when the thunderstorm’s updraft can no longer support the weight of the ice or the updraft weakens. The stronger the updraft the larger the hail can grow.
Property damage from hailstorms can include roof damage, exterior structure damage to walls and interior water damage caused by hail or wind created openings in the roof or exterior structures of homes or businesses. If your property was damaged, you should take pictures or video of the hail as well as your damaged property so you will have evidence when submitting an insurance claim. Attorney representation can make a tremendous difference in the success of your claim with your insurance company. Attorney representation can result in obtaining more compensation in a faster manner so that you can repair or replace hail and rain damaged property.
