Standing Up to Corporate Misconduct and Insurance Companies
Although insurance carriers are good at entertaining us with funny commercials and lodging their catchy slogans in our heads, they’re not always good at paying the claims they are supposed to pay. At Wenholz | Dow, P.C., Trial Lawyers in Austin, TX, we understand the methods employed by insurance companies, and we know how to hold them accountable and do what is right for our clients.
Our attorneys are effective at confronting insurance carriers for their bad faith and wrongfully denied claims, builders and engineers for their construction defects, and careless and negligent companies whose actions and employees injure innocent victims. We have focused on these matters in the great state of Texas since we opened our doors.
