Were you or someone you know a victim of the March 2015 Hailstorm?
You are not alone. According to collected weather data and news reports, the cities of McAllen, Alton, Mission, and Pharr were all slammed with hail moving along with wind gusts estimated around 50 MPH. Hail was reported in some areas to be approximately between 1.5 to 2 inches in size. Although this hailstorm was not as powerful as the hailstorms of 2012, upper-Valley residents certainly felt the disastrously effects of this storm.
At the Moore Law Firm, we have seen countless cases in McAllen and all over South Texas where insurance companies have denied, delayed, and underpaid rightful claims by property owners who were victims in other hail and windstorms that caused upwards of tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage. These practices are ILLEGAL and you have already paid ENOUGH in premiums and payments to your insurance company.
By The Numbers
In 2013, State Farm, alone, made $68.3 BILLION in revenue. To put that into perspective, that iss more than McDonald's, Nike, and Visa COMBINED! At the end of the day, an insurance company is just another business trying to make a profit, even if that means breaking the law by rejecting your rightful claim. Over 6,500 cases have already been filed with the Hidalgo County District Court. Those are over 6,500 different rejected claims, over 6,500 different families, over 6,500 different stories of how every-day, hardworking, insurance premium paying people like the good citizens of McAllen, Alton, and Mission were unjustly rejected and left to pay for their leaky roofs, broken windows, torn up fences, and damaged homes out of their own pocket by their multi-billion dollar insurance company. Our dedicated, insurance fighting attorneys at the Moore Law Firm think ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It's time to get your claim PAID.

Time is Ticking Away...
When the 2012 hail and windstorms devastated Hidalgo County, your first concern was for the safety of your friends and neighbors, the second for your property. But now is the time to make sure you and your loved ones will be properly compensated for any damages to your homes and businesses and time is running out.THE END IS NEAR, BUT DIFFERENT CASES HAVE DIFFERENT DEADLINES. FOR MANY PEOPLE THE DEADLINE MAY DEPEND ON THE DATE OF DENIAL OR UNDERPAYMENT, NOT JUST THE DATE OF THE STORM.
Texas law imposes certain deadlines or time periods that affect any potential hail or windstorm claim or lawsuit that you may have. Additionally, your insurance policy may contain certain time limits you must comply with in order to pursue any claims you may have. If you do not comply with deadlines set forth under Texas law and your insurance policy, your rights to bring a claim or lawsuit will be forever lost.SO WHEN IS YOUR DEADLINE?
Often, the deadline will need to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Generally speaking, Texas law allows parties to a contract to limit the time to file suit by agreement. Because you insurance policy is considered a contract, your insurance company may argue that the deadline runs when your policy says it runs (often within two years of the occurrence). The deadline is often listed in your insurance policy under a "Suit Against Us" or similar provision. The date your claim was underpaid or denied could also dictate your ability to recover under Texas law, although the safe bet is to file your lawsuit prior to the two-year anniversary of the storm. Either way, you must file your lawsuit within the designated time period or you will forever lose your rights to pursue your claim.
In order for your specific deadline to be determined, it is imperative that you have a hail/windstorm insurance attorney analyze the facts of your case and review your paperwork immediately, including your:
