Hurricane Harvey Destroys Texas Coastline
At approximately 7:00PM Central on August 25th, Hurricane Harvey reached the Texas coast as a category 4 hurricane. Texas residents along the Galveston sea wall, through Corpus Christi and in Houston, experienced winds over 130mph and several feet of rain. Residents in those areas saw damaged windows, totaled cars, downed power lines, and flooded homes. Worse yet, Hurricane Harvey is responsible for several deaths in these areas. It will take a long time to recover from the damage Hurricane Harvey caused, for business and home owners alike.
A Personal History of Hurricanes and Storm Insurance
Back in 2008, Tylka Law Firm’s Galveston office was hit hard by Hurricane Ike. A lot of our case work was lost and property damaged, but we considered ourselves lucky. Our staff was alright, our friends and family were alive, and our office wasn’t too badly hit.
During this time, we found ourselves dealing with our storm and flood insurance company. They were very hostile when we asked for the full value of our damaged property, and it took a lot of back-and-forth to get it. We also realized that several of our clients had negative experiences with their own insurance companies, until we began to negotiate for them. Tylka Law Firm recovered a significant percentage of claims for our clients that their insurance companies initially denied.
