Hurricane Harvey Left Nearly a Million Cars Flooded or Underwater
In Harvey's wake, insurance providers are facing more than 100,000 auto insurance claims. Multiple companies have said that they’re facing more than 5 times the annual average number of claims. The high volume of potential settlements (on top of other types of claims in Harvey’s wake) has made insurers less likely than ever to offer fast, fair payouts.
Once the skies cleared, insurance providers took steps to ensure that only insurers of certain incomes could buy new policies—meaning households that depend on buying used vehicles are facing serious obstacles in the coming years.
For many car buyers, their options will be limited to buying new cars because providers won’t insure used cars or middle-income earners. Experts also believe that premiums for everyone will shoot up in the coming months.
All of this means one thing: getting a large auto insurance settlement now is vital to your future stability. Texas is a driver’s state. Getting to work, getting to school, and powering the post-Harvey recovery of South Texas requires having a reliable vehicle. You can’t afford to wait months for a suitable replacement car—you need to get on the road now. You also can’t afford to get a small payout because the supply of used cars has taken a massive hit. You need a suitable replacement, and you need it quickly.
Why You Need a Lawyer in Your Corner
