Understanding the Process of Texas Freeze Claims
The February 2021 Texas Freeze caused millions of residents to endure power outages, property damage, injuries, and, sadly, the loss of loved ones. Unfortunately, many people who suffered these damages may not understand their rights when recovering damages and dealing with insurance companies — who are notorious for offering less than adequate compensation for losses.
If the Texas Freeze impacted you, here are three steps to take when filing a claim.
Step 1: Know the Filing Deadlines
First, it's critical to understand the personal injury statute of limitations in Texas. In most cases, according to Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, filing a civil suit for injuries and losses must not be filed later than two years after the date of the event that caused the injury. There are some exceptions to filing deadlines. However, it's critical to speak to a Texas Freeze lawyer to learn your options.
Step 2: Gather Your Evidence
Whether you've suffered a severe injury or damage to your home, having as much documentation showing your losses is critical. For example, if you had plumbing repair for a burst pipe, keep the receipt to ascertain your incurred cost. Likewise, if you were treated for an injury and have medical bills, save all related medical documentation, including invoices, doctors' notes, and assessments.
Step 3: Contact a Texas Freeze Lawyer
Insurance companies are not your friend and they often make low settlement offers. Having a Texas Freeze lawyer in your corner who knows how to handle insurance companies and negotiate settlements on your behalf can make all the difference in the outcome of your claim.
