The Dallas hailstorm in June, 2012, continues to haunt many homeowners and business owners who had their property seriously damaged by the storm. Baseball-sized hail rained down on Dallas and the surrounding areas, causing extensive damage to vehicles, homes, and businesses. This storm created such a serious level of property damage, that millions of dollars in claims were expected. Unfortunately, many individuals and business owners have had difficulty in getting fair compensation from their insurance companies. That’s when Wyly & Cook, LLP can step in. The firm represents individuals and businesses in insurance disputes and insurance bad faith cases, and is assisting those who have not gotten a claim related to the damage from this hail storm paid.
It can be a shocking turn of events to have a claim for damages denied, particularly when insurance premiums have been faithfully paid, often for decades, to ensure that a home or business is protected when the unexpected occurs. Insurance companies could deny a claim, and say that this decision is based on the wording of a contract, citing a specific clause in the policy that makes the claim invalid. This is only one of many tactics that could be implemented by insurance companies to avoid paying claims. If your claim was denied, or if you were offered a settlement that could not possibly cover the costs of repair, it is important to consult with an attorney before accepting the denial or the settlement offer. The firm’s founder, Brad Wyly, is an experienced and talented civil litigator, and has served as counsel in a wide range of insurance disputes, and has been called upon to help some of the victims of the June hailstorm to get the legal issues regarding a settlement resolved.
Mr. Wyly’s credentials are impeccable, and he is rated AV (preeminent)
by Martindale-Hubbell, the most respected attorney peer review rating service. Also named as one of the “Top 40 Under 40” by the National Trial Lawyers, and listed as one of the “Texas Rising Stars.” The firm takes on insurance companies in mediation, arbitration or litigation in cases related to the June hailstorm that remain unresolved, or when a claim has been unfairly denied. If the insurance company acted in bad faith, the court usually will award attorney fees to the plaintiff. The firm is involved in contacting victims of the storm to assist in filing claims or lawsuits to get damages paid fairly.
