Hidalgo County jury shuts down Mostyn Law hail suit, USAA seeks final judgment

By David Yates | May 15, 2018

McALLEN – After nearly four years of litigation, USAA Texas Lloyds is seeking a favorable final judgment in a hail lawsuit brought through The Mostyn Law Firm in Houston.

Seeking up to $1 million in damages, Karina Sanchez filed suit against USAA on July 2, 2014, in Hidalgo County District Court.

Two years prior to the litigation, Sanchez claims her McAllen home was damaged when a hailstorm struck the area on March 29, 2012.  

She submitted a claim to USAA and alleges a “substandard inspection” ensued, leading to the insurer “approving an improper adjustment,” the suit states.

Court records show the case went to trial on April 9 and ended with a unanimous jury finding USAA complied with Sanchez’s insurance policy.

No damages were awarded.

On May 10, USAA submitted a final judgment that is in accordance with the jury’s verdict. 

As of May 15, no ruling is on file.

The Record contacted the trial court several times in hopes of acquiring the jury charge but court officials repeatedly told the Record that they were unaware of the trial.

The 398th Judicial District handled the case.

USAA is represented in part by David Kinder, attorney for the Dykema Cox Smith law firm in San Antonio.

Sanchez is represented in part Mostyn Law attorney Michael Downey.

Case No. C-6112-14-I
