9 Special Hurricane Ike Services
Much like home and property owners in the area, Hurricane Ike did not spare churches throughout Southeast Texas. The damages to physical buildings and other unique losses to churches are just some of the many problems facing churches as they undertake the rebuilding process.
The Mostyn Law Firm stands ready to assist our church leaders in navigating their insurance coverage. Commercial insurance claims are complex and mistakes are often made that may result in many thousands of lost dollars to your church. We want to help you avoid these mistakes and help you get all the money your congregation deserves so your church can continue its mission within your community.
We are currently helping thousands of Hurricane Ike, Hurricane Rita, and Hurricane Humberto victims who feel they were treated unfairly and in bad faith by their insurer. Providing this help has given us incredible experience and knowledge of the complex policy provisions, and standard operating procedures and corporate policy nuances of practically every major insurance carrier operating in the State of Texas.
We want to share the benefits of our experience with you, to help make sure you get all the money you deserve. To do this we offer 9 special services specifically designed to meet the unique needs of your commercial claim. These services are listed below. Please give them a quick review and then pick up the phone and call us. We are standing by to answer all of your questions and to help take away the frustration you may be experiencing working with your insurer and its adjusters.
And if there ever comes a time you simply cannot get a fair offer for your damages, as so many churches experienced with Hurricane Rita and Humberto, we will be there for you to take the actions you need to protect your rights and to help settle any dispute you may have.
And importantly when we work on your behalf we take the cash flow risk away from your church as we work for you on a contingency-fee-basis. Working on a contingency-fee-basis means when you have been treated unfairly any expenses and fees to us for all of our works are required to be paid by your insurer. Plus the law requires these costs to be paid on top of all the money you deserve for your actual damages — so when you agree to a fair settlement you can be comfortable you will actually receive all the money your church deserves to recover for your actual property damages.
When you call us we will:
