Geovera Plays Games; Homeowners Not Amused
In early May, 2015, hailstorms and thunderstorms ripped through southeastern Texas, leaving behind destroyed homes and damaged lives in their wake. Our clients, a couple in Harris County, Texas, and their home were no exception. Geovera Insurance denied our client’s damage claims.
After the hailstorm, they immediately filed a claim with their homeowner’s insurance company, Geovera, asking them to pay for the damages so that they could make repairs and start getting their lives back in order.
Geovera hired an adjuster to inspect our clients’ home and assess the damage. The inspector found that there were no covered damages to our clients’ home, therefore denying their claim and leaving them with no recovery to make repairs to their home.
So, our clients hired a public adjuster, who conducted an unbiased inspection and found a litany of damages that Geovera’s adjuster had left off, resulting in more than $13,500 worth of damages to the home. Seeing that they were owed much more than Geovera suggested, the clients promptly sought out the Chad T. Wilson Law Firm to help them obtain the recovery they had, essentially, already paid for through the purchase of their insurance policy.
On Tuesday, July 26, 2016, the Chad T. Wilson Law Firm filed suit against Geovera insurance company in Harris County, Texas for fraud, breach of contract, violations of the Texas Insurance Code and Texas DTPA, and wrongfully denying our clients coverage under their policy.
Through its adjuster, Geovera conducted a substandard and improper inspection of the clients’ home, which grossly undervalued the cost of repairs in its estimate and yielded an unrealistic amount to underpay coverage. Geovera unreasonably adjusted our clients’ claim, misrepresenting the cause of, scope of, and cost to repair damages to their property.
Because of Geovera’s misrepresentations, our clients were forced to hire an attorney to file a lawsuit for insurance benefits.
