Flash floods and heavy rains throughout Texas, specifically, Houston, Austin, and Wimberley, are expected to bring more flood insurance claims that likely have not been seen since Tropical Storm Allison swept through the Houston area in 2001. The storms that followed the Memorial Day holiday have affected the lives of thousands of Texans, and tragically resulted in numerous lives being lost and several still remain missing.
Following a storm such as this, many residents are left wondering how they will recover from the extensive damage suffered to their homes, personal belongings, vehicles, and possibly business. For those fortunate enough to be covered by flood insurance, there is hope for recovery. However, insurance companies have historically made the claims process rigorous and confusing for their insured. Also, your policy may require you to file your claim within a prescribed time and follow set guidelines laid out in your insurance policy in order to be entitled to compensation for your damages. Furthermore, your insurance may actually be provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which could require you to follow federal guidelines that require you to navigate your way through a bureaucratic process or risk losing your right to being compensated.
