Our entire team at Scott, Vicknair, Hair & Checki, LLC would like to express our most sincere sympathies to the individuals and families affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult and traumatic time. We understand all too well what everyone in Houston, and the entire state of Texas, is going through, having experienced the aftermath of both Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in recent years. Amid all of the confusion and mayhem, we want to offer our help as you begin to recover and move forward.
At Scott, Vicknair, Hair & Checki, LLC, we want to help you overcome any setbacks resulting from Hurricane Harvey. Sometimes getting started filing insurance claims and identifying the right course of action can simply be too overwhelming after such a crushing disaster. However, our experienced legal team has the skills and knowledge necessary to help you determine your next move. We can discuss your situation and your immediate needs, addressing each issue one at a time in order to make a legal plan you can be happy with. We will stand by your side throughout the process, from filing insurance claims to negotiating settlements.
After natural disasters, insurance companies are often overloaded with claims, which can make obtaining compensation for your home damages much more difficult. Not all insurance companies honor the promises made in their policy, resulting in insurance bad faith. If your claim was wrongfully denied, or if you did not receive enough to cover the cost of repairs to your home, we may be able to help.
Following hurricanes and other natural disasters, we can help with any of the following concerns:
- Business interruption claims
- Property Casualty, including storm or flood damage
- Insurance bad faith claims
- FEMA assistance
- SBA loans
- Force Majeure Issues
- Real Estate Issues
- Environmental law issues
- Construction issues
For help regarding your federal and state tax return for this year, there are payment relieve options available to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
