Houston Insurance Claim Lawyers


Office building damage can be an extremely costly affair. Office building owners may find their day-to-day operations interrupted by damage caused by hurricane, windstorm, hailstorm, fire or other natural disaster.  This damage can result in repair costs and lost income from not being able to collect rent while the building is damaged or under repair.  Many office buildings in the Houston area were damaged as a result of Hurricane Harvey and losses from this damage will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Unfortunately, insurance companies often drag their feet when it comes to paying commercial insurance claims associated with office buildings due to the large nature of these losses. Under Texas law, if the insurance company delays payment of your office building damage claim or wrongfully denies the claim, your business may be entitled to damages under the Texas Insurance Code, the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (“DTPA”) and Texas common law. Damages include policy benefits, statutory interest penalties, additional damages (also known as treble damages), attorney fees and court costs.
