The north side of Dallas saw up to 4-inch hail Sunday night.
The north part of Dallas, Texas, was hit with baseball and softball-size hail stones on Sunday, June 11th, 2023. Hail is not uncommon in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. However, hail of this size is abnormally large for this time of year. Typically severe spring weather in this area is seen between April and June, but typically, the storms that blow through the area in June are wind storms. Check HERE to see all the areas impacted.
Following a storm of this magnitude, the main concern is to ensure you get your property inspected for damage. In some areas, there may not have been enough damage to warrant filing an insurance claim, so receiving the proper inspection can assist you in deciding if a claim is necessary. Taking these steps can prevent you from filing a potentially frivolous claim.
What Kind Of Damage Does Hail Cause?
Hail damage impacts building materials differently. It is crucial to have someone inspect the damage that understands and knows how to properly assess the specific material types on your property. For instance, the proper assessment of commercial building materials differs greatly from that of a residential building. So, if a hailstorm has impacted your property, it is vital to make sure that your public adjuster, contractor, or insurance representatives specialize in your specific property type and/or building materials.
Should I File an Insurance Claim for Hail Damage?
When hail hits a property, having a professional evaluate the damage is always a good idea. Proper inspection and damage assessment can help you determine the extent of the damage and identify when it occurred to ensure the property owner does not file a potentially frivolous claim. When filing your claim, you should have all the facts to present at the time of filing so that you are setting the appropriate expectations for your insurance carrier. In doing this, you are not only allowing them to assign the proper adjuster to your claim but also setting your claim up for success and an expedited process. Remember, it is your responsibility to prove the damage!
