weekend storm system that has caused extensive flooding, tornadoes, and
other adverse weather conditions. At least five in Texas have died, a

sincerest condolences to all victims during this time.

Families & Communities Counting on Support
As damage is still being measured and assessed from these storms, one thing
remains certain: countless Texas families and individuals will be turning
to their insurance companies for the relief they need to rebuild and repair
their homes and move on with their lives. When widespread damage like
this occurs, it is almost certain that there will be some instances when
these companies refuse to honor their customer's policies and leave
them in states of disrepair or even homelessness.
At Guerra & Farah, PLLC, we understand how heartbreaking weather events
like this can be and that, in some cases, homes that have been lost can
never truly be replaced. However, Texas policy holders who have suffered
losses during this storm deserve the recognition and coverage they have
paid for. In troubled times like these, insurance companies should be
working to help support and rebuild these communities, not to marginalize
and abandon the customers who have counted on them.

and storm damage your property has sustained, then we invite you to contact us at
