Verdicts & Settlements

Billions of Dollars in Verdicts and Settlements

Hurricane Litigation – Disaster Claims

Thornhill Law Firm, A PLC, has recovered tens of millions ($10,000,000s), while successfully representing hundreds of clients in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi against insurance companies. Experienced like few others in representing individuals and businesses, Thornhill Law Firm is poised to represent the victims of recent storms by prosecuting the claims to recover under insurance policies covering disaster events, including business package policies providing wind coverage in hurricane disasters . With offices in Louisiana and Texas, and having lost residences and commercial buildings in Louisiana and Mississippi over the last forty-one years, Thornhill Law Firm has “experienced first-hand the impacts on your life and businesses requiring you to bring a Disaster Claim” arising from the recent storms impacting Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. Following one Hurricane after another, e.g., Katrina, Rita, Ike, Laura, Cristobal, Marco, Sally and Zeta, Thornhill Law Firm, has stood in the gap for Business Claimants and Personal Claimants to advocate on a contingency fee basis the damages claims of Claimants against their big insurance companies. Over and over again, overly aggressive, complex adjustment practices are encountered and defeated to prevent the insurance company from denying or limiting claims which should be paid in full. Don’t allow your property insurance or business insurer to add to your damages when it plays “the insurance game – to deny or limit your disaster claims.” Call or email Thornhill Law Firm for a free review of your information in your claims.
