How Insurance Issues Can Affect Disaster Survivors

Drawn out insurance disputes can have longterm effects on households and entire communities. This is why many disaster survivors turn to our Austin law office for help.

Loss of Your Home

Floods, hurricanes, and other acts of God may leave your house uninhabitable. Without sufficient insurance payments for cleaning and repairs, you may never be able to move back into your home.

Forced Relocation

Homeowners may be forced by necessity to move. This could be relocation to a different part of the city or a different part of the state, affecting employment, education, child care, and other aspects of life.

Financial Hardships

Repairing your home and moving are major financial burdens. Without sufficient coverage, you may be forced to take loans or dip into your savings, making an already desperate situation more difficult.

Devastation to the Community

We've focused a lot on the legal and financial concerns of the individual, but disasters affect the whole community. The cumulative destruction and financial instability puts entire groups of people at risk.

Dedicated Natural Disaster Lawyers

The lawyers at Wenholz | Dow represent families and communities that have been devastated by hurricanes, wildfires, or other natural disasters. We can help you determine if someone is to blame for the disaster, and we can help you fight large insurance companies to make sure they pay what they should. We are proud to take on these cases because we believe it is our duty to help people in need.
