The Nations Law Firm is proud to announce the successful outcome of a charitable event which we were fortunate enough to sponsor. The 7th Annual North Texas Warrior Golf Tournament took place in Southlake, Texas all day today. This is the group’s only fundraiser and essentially funds their entire yearly operating budget. The North Texas Warrior Golf Association works with wounded veterans throughout the year, providing them with playing opportunities and golfing equipment, all as a means to assist with their rehab and their successful reintegration into civilian life.
One of our attorneys, Rachel Rose, was on site at the event and met with veterans and their families to answer questions about the Anti-Terrorism Act lawsuits which our firm is handling. War veterans who were injured in Iraq or Afghanistan may be eligible for compensation through this lawsuit. Their families may also have a claim.
Not only did Ms. Rose meet with people at the event, she was also on the air with Major Andrew White, on his popular radio show, Kilroy’s Conversation, A Voice for Veterans and First Responders.
As you have probably heard by now, Equifax, a consumer credit reporting agency , has been hacked. Reportedly, the hackers have accessed personal information, including social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and credit card numbers for 143 million U.S. customers. That is nearly two-thirds of the adult U.S. population! Identity theft has a crippling effect on individuals and can take years to recover from. An identity theft operation affecting this many people would be unprecedented and could potentially cause major disruptions that would take years to untangle.

To our friends in Texas. The Texas insurance laws are changing this week. FILE your property damage claims BEFORE FRIDAY SEPT 1st. Any claims filed after tomorrow will be under the new law. The new law, HB 1774, reduces your protection and remedies against the insurance company should they deny your claim or drag their feet in processing and paying valid claims. File with every property insurance company you have. Flood insurance is sold separately from your homeowner’s policy. Property owners along the coast may have an additional policy with the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association. THIS IS NOT A SCAM.

August 30, 2017 – The rain finally stopped yesterday evening and the sun peeked out in time for sunset. Today we have blue skies, clouds, and some mild wind. It is not raining, at least not in this part of Houston. Don’t be fooled by this picture perfect scene that I am describing. Houston and the surrounding areas are devastated. Not only is the floodwater not going down in some areas, it is actually expected to rise, primarily due to the controlled release and overflow of water from nearby reservoirs. There are over 17,000 people in Houston shelters. Some people are still evacuating and being rescued. Many streets and freeways remain impassible. The schools and the airports are closed. Most businesses are closed. We managed to open our Houston offices today and are working normal hours. All of our staff and their families are safe, but several of them had to evacuate their homes and many have suffered extensive property damage. This is just the beginning of what will surely be a long, difficult road to recovery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our neighbors who are now in the patch of this monstrous storm.
