Since natural disasters are out of your control, condo owners or a condominium association shouldn't be held responsible to repair landslide and mudslide damage to condominiums.
Sometimes, mudslide damages are not covered by insurance policies. If this is the case, an attorney may be able to help determine if there was another party that may be responsible for the damage. For example, the mudslide could have started from construction crews that may have been working up the hill from the condominiums. The construction company or another party may be to blame for the damage you sustained.
Not only can damage occur to a condominium building, but damage from mudslides can also occur to:
- Condominium garages
- Condominium parking lots
- Condominium community buildings, club houses and other common spaces
- Power lines around the condominium
- Access roads and streets around the condominium
- And more
How a Lawyer Can Help
A skilled insurance litigation lawyer can help protect your rights, handle your insurance disputes, or even consult with other professionals to build a strong case for you. For example, an attorney can have engineers and surveyors come out to the site and assess the damage to see if another party is responsible.
It is critical to speak with an experienced attorney in order to recover damages from your insurance provider or pursue litigation against the responsible party. Call Texas insurance litigation lawyer Bill Voss at the Voss Law Firm at 888-614-7730 for a free legal consultation.
