Insurance Partner Steven Knott Quoted in Law360 on Issues Related to Hurricane Harvey

09/19/2017 Law360

Nossaman Insurance Partner Steven Knott was quoted in the Law360 story “5 Hurricane Harvey Insurance Battlegrounds To Watch.”  The story posed questions that could lead to clashes between policyholders and insurers in the aftermath of the hurricane. One of the questions was “What caused the loss?” as the hurricane and resulting floods will spark debates on the causes of damage to policyholders' homes and commercial properties, and the answers could be the deciding factor on the availability of insurance. Mr. Knott pointed  out that policyholders that are close to  airports and military bases can refer to wind data collected by these facilities to help prove  their damages  were caused at least in part by wind. He added that "For anything above 35 miles per hour, you have a good argument that wind contributed to the damage. I think a lot of policyholders will be trying to get accurate wind data."
