You may have left your house for work that day only to return to a blazing fire, or you may have been startled out of bed in the middle of the night by the sounds of a roaring fire. These images can leave scars and cause emotional distress. Not only does a Texas residential fire cause you emotional pain and suffering, but it can cost you the following things:
- Your home: The flames of a fire can be so destructive that an entire home can burn up even before the fire department can start battling the blaze. When you suffer a home loss, you not only lose your furniture and everything that was in your house, but you may feel like you lost memories that were made in that home.
- Your family and/or pets: If your family members and/or pets were not fortunate enough to make it out of your home during the fire, you are now dealing with the loss of a loved one and the pain and grief the fire ultimately caused.
- Your items: Although items lost in your home are material items, they carry sentimental value as well as monetary value. The sad fact is that some of these items, like family heirlooms that may have been passed down, collector's items, one-of-a-kind pieces, and items purchased on vacations in other countries, are irreplaceable. You will also need new clothes, toiletries and other necessities that the fire destroyed, which may include your vehicle.
- Your valuable time: When a fire occurs you are left to pick up the pieces, deal with the insurance company, purchase new items, find another place to live, and the list goes on. This will often cost you valuable time, and may even lead to time away from work and lost wages.
After fire damage in Texas occurs, you are not only left to deal with your losses but you are left working with the insurance company, trying to get access to your benefits and get compensated for what is rightfully yours. Although you would assume that the insurance company would have pity on you for what you just went through, they typically look out only for their best interest and their bottom line.
