Receiving the Financial Help You Deserve
In mid-September, 2008, Hurricane Ike hit land in Texas for the first time in 25 years. The damage inflicted on the entire Gulf Coast area where the hurricane wreaked most of its harm is said to have reached around $29.5 billion, not including its effect on the Bahamas, Cuba, Turks, Caicos and other islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Not only did it result in horrific property damage, but it also was the reason for 195 fatalities. One of the major reasons its damage reached so far was due to the sheer size of the storm, causing major surges of water to be pushed onto shore. Many homes were completely wiped out; others were left with nothing but a pile of debris and a frame of where a house used to stand.

What Will a Hurricane Damage Claim Cover?
The answer to this question is entirely dependent upon your insurance provider, your specific situation and how well the damage is documented so that you can prove it to your insurance company. There are certain things that you can seek out compensation for and with the help of a qualified Texas bad faith insurance lawyer, you could attain financial restitution. See the following list:
This may seem obvious but it can get complicated when trying to figure out the value of every piece of furniture, clothing, electronics and the value of your house prior to the hurricane. You will most likely have to make home improvements of some kind in order to restore your home to a proper living space. Your insurance company should cover that work.
Having a Temporary Place to Live
While you are figuring out the condition of your place of residence, you will most likely need to stay in a hotel or rent out another place until you can move back in. Insurance should help pay for any additional living expenses, potentially for up to 24 months.
Fixing Your Car
In heavy storms, brutal damage can be inflicted on cars, trucks, boats and other vehicles. Especially in the event that you need your car to get to and from work or to care for your family, insurance should help cover the repairs needed.
No matter how bad the damage is, you should never be left to handle it on your own. Natural disasters like hurricanes and other tropical storms are completely out of your hands. Do not assume that you cannot receive the kind of help you need.
