FEBRUARY 2021 TEXAS WINTER WEATHER
Personal Injury | Pipe Burst | Water Damage | Power Outage Class Action
The week of February 14, 2021 will be one most Texans will forever remember. Due to the below freezing temperatures and the power companies not being prepared, many people lost water and power. While most Texans did their best to stay inside and keep warm, most houses were unable to hold heat. This caused several tragedies as house temperatures dropped below freezing. A young boy died of hypothermia, hundreds could not use their respirators due to no power and were hospitalized, and over 400+ phone calls were made to the Texas Poison Center Network regarding carbon monoxide poisoning.

Not only did the extreme winter weather cause power outages across Texas, many people had to file insurance claims for frozen pipes and water damage. What causes pipes to burst during wintry weather? When the weather is at or below freezing, the water coming into the house is much colder than it is during the summer. The cold water causes your pipes to contract at which point, the weakest portions cannot withstand the pressure of the water and the pipes burst. These physical and water damages will allow you to file a claim with your insurance company. Many residents may not know the details of their policy or the tricks insurance companies may use to deny, delay, or underpay their claim.
When a natural disaster occurs, it can lead to unexpected and sometimes drastic financial burdens.
