Hi,
It seems you have logged off, so I've switched over to Q&A format.

The most important questions to answer are:

1. When did the property damage take place?

2. Where did it take place?

3. Who is the owner of the RV park?

4. What is the name of the insurance company?

Frankly, insurance companies these days are rarely paying out full value unless and until you file suit against them. Please answer these questions and I'll give you the information you need to get your claim started fully.
Expert:  TexLaw replied 5 years ago.
I see that you answered that the RV park was in New Orleans. This means that to file suit, you will have to file the suit in New Orleans. There is no way for you to file the suit in Texas because the Texas courts do not have jurisdiction over the New Orleans RV Park.

However, you do have a case for trespass to chattels and general negligence. These are the legal "causes of action" to recover for damage to personal property, such as an RV.

Unfortunately, the need to file suit in Louisiana and the need for a lawyer will likely require you to pay an attorney a retainer to work on your case. You might be able to find an attorney to handle your case for a contingency fee, but contingency fees are ranging up to 40% of the amount obtained. Given that you are only trying to get the bill paid for the repairs, it will probably be worth it just to pay the attorney by the hour.

This is not a complicated case so there would not be a need to go with an attorney who has lots of experience. That way you can find someone who will be able to do it for relatively cheap. There are many good attorneys in New Orleans who will be able to help you. Just do a google search to locate one.

Let me know if you need any further information or want an issue looked at specifically and I'll be glad to assist you.

Thanks,
Zachary D. Norris
