Helping Texans file insurance claim after Hurricane Harvey

first_imgFrom staff reportsMany Texans are just now seeing the damage caused to their property by Hurricane Harvey.   The Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) recommends that homeowners and vehicle owners take the time to assess the damage to their property by taking photographs or video and then reporting the claim to your insurance agent or company as soon as possible. Many insurance companies, including USAA, Allstate, Progressive, among others, and the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) and Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA), have already set up mobile claims centers in the Corpus Christi, Rockport and Victoria.  A complete list of Disaster Assistance Mobile Units can be found here at the TDI website http://www.tdi.texas.gov/consumer/storms/mobileunits.htmlHelpful tips in documenting and filing your claim: • Homeowners are urged to avoid using “storm chasing” building contractors who come in offering inexpensive services and immediate repairs.  Check and see if your city or county requires contractors to be licensed or registered in your area.  If so, make sure the contractors have complied with your local laws.The Texas Department of Insurance also has information on its Help after Harvey webpage, including information on claim filing and other consumer resources, http://www.tdi.texas.gov/consumer/storms/helpafterharvey.htmlAlso, unfortunately, this is a time where some will try and take advantage of consumers who have suffered loss due to Harvey.  Various roofing and building contractors, water damage recovery vendors, and others will show up and defraud beleaguered homeowners. “We highly recommend that affected homeowners seek building contractors who have been living and working in the immediate area for years and have built a good reputation for their work,” said Mark Hanna, a spokesperson for the Insurance Council of Texas.  “With local building contractors, you will know the quality of their work and where to find them the next day in the event that you have any problems.”Tens of thousands of cars and trucks have been submerged in floodwaters from Harvey.  Over the next few months we may see some of those cars being sold without disclosing the flood damage and offered at bargain prices in Texas and across the nation.
