Mindiola Law Firm’s Aircraft and Airport Property Damage Practice

Anastacio Mindiola

Anastacio Mindiola, a graduate of the South Texas College of Law, began his legal career in 2004 as a law clerk with the Harris County District Attorney’s office in Houston. For nearly seven years, Anastacio Trae Mindiola has led his own Houston-based law firm. The firm serves clients in a variety of areas, including aircraft and airport property damage claims.

Aircraft and airport property damage cases generally occur when an insurer declines or delays payments for damages to an aircraft or related airport facilities. With the help of an experienced aviation accident lawyer, aircraft and airport owners can work toward expediting the payment process or resolving rejected claims. An aviation accident lawyer may need to address a number of arguments made by insurance representatives, such as the issued claim exceeding the perceived value of the damage or the cause of damage not being covered by the insurance policy.

Aviation accident lawyers can also assist clients in understanding and negotiating the terms and limits of a policy. Some of the most common examples of aircraft damage include weather related damages, construction flaws and equipment malfunctions, and vandalism.

Attorney Anastacio “Trae” Mindiola deals with civil lawsuits from his office in Houston, Texas. Anastacio Mindiola’s clientele often come to him for assistance with claims involving damage from severe weather, such as hurricanes and hailstorms.

Victims of severe weather should take immediate action to present the best possible claim to their insurance companies. Important steps include:

Before you contact your agency, have your policy number ready and find out what other information you need to provide. Continue documentation prior to cleaning up by photographing or taking video of damage done to your property. Providing information in the proper form should help speed your claim.

Make only temporary repairs, such as covering broken windows and fixing compromised roofs and walls. Wait for permanent repairs until your insurance company can inspect your property and issue an estimate you find acceptable. Keep all receipts.

Finally, record details of all contacts with your insurance company, such as the times and dates of calls or visits, the name of your agent, and the fine points of conversations.
