We’ve Helped Hundreds of Texans Get the Compensation They Deserved after Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey was a catastrophic Category 4 storm that made landfall in South Central Texas on August 25, 2017. Harvey caused unprecedented rainfall and flooding in Southeast Texas, dropping more than 50 inches of rain on Houston alone. The estimated damages total $125 billion, making it the second most expensive Hurricane in the U.S., behind Hurricane Katrina.
The experienced flood and wind insurance lawyers at Long & Long dedicated their practice to helping Texas homeowners and business owners whose claims were denied or underpaid by their insurance companies.
We heard too many stories of those who purchased flood and wind insurance and were grossly underpaid by their insurance companies, leaving them without what they needed to rebuild and recover.
Hurricane Harvey took a considerable toll on each victim’s emotional and financial well-being, and by working with our experienced hurricane insurance team, our clients had a reliable partner to navigate the entire insurance claims process and advocate on their behalf in a time of crisis.
