While away on a mission trip, a Texan woman received a frightening phone call. She was told a storm had blown a massive tree into the middle of her house. According to an article on The Flowers Law Firm, P.C. website, the woman’s friends and family rescued as many personal possessions as possible. Unfortunately, the tree was 5 feet in diameter and destroyed both the foundation of her home and many family heirlooms.
After the woman returned from her mission trip and saw the damage, she immediately called State Farm Insurance to report her claim. An engineer and adjuster both visited her property, but said they could not finish their evaluations due to tree debris. Four months later, the pair still had not returned to the woman’s home. The insurance company’s hired engineer and adjuster had written a report that called for the foundation of the home to be piecemealed back together. The Flowers Law Firm, P.C. says very few contractors would agree to rebuild a house on that type of fabricated foundation, and if they did, the contractors would not provide warranties for their work.
The Texan woman contacted The Flowers Law Firm, P.C and asked Donivan W. Flowers for his help to fight State Farm Insurance. The firm filed a lawsuit against State Farm for their bad faith insurance practices, breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing, and delays in payment. State Farm Insurance hired a lawyer and only then did State Farm make an attempt to resolve the claim.
The Flowers Law Firm, P.C ensured its client received the money she was owed to rebuild her home, pay for damage to her personal property and for additional living expenses. On top of that, the client was able to recover statutory damages for State Farm’s late payments and attorney’s fees.
