Houston Inverse Condemnation Lawyer
What is Inverse Condemnation?
When private property is damaged or taken for public use by the government’s intentional acts – even if those acts are reasonable or necessary to prevent further harm – property owners must be reasonably compensated for their damages. The government’s actions constitute an “inverse condemnation” of your property, and the “takings clause” of both constitutions requires adequate compensation of the property owner.
Are you a Victim of the Addicks and Barker Reservoir Releases?
Hurricane Harvey caused unprecedented flooding in the Houston area. However, many homes and businesses began flooding only after Harvey stopped raining down on the city. When the Army Corp of Engineers and local government officials decided to intentionally release water from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs, many homes and business not previously damaged by Hurricane Harvey began flooding rapidly. If your property began flooding only after the Addicks or Barker controlled releases, you may be entitled to compensation under the U.S. and Texas Constitutions.
