2017 – A Few of Our Most Interesting Claims

(From our many claims of 2017, the following are the more interesting.)

A corporate attorney with storm damage to his home had attempted for five months to resolve his claim with his insurance company that had paid him only $3,500 for storm damage to his expensive copper and slate roofing system.. His roofing contractor referred him to me for assistance. After my negotiations were completed, the policyholder received an additional check for $56,000.00.

A homeowner had a fire start in the dryer of his home which caused extensive damage.  His insurance company accused him of setting the fire and refused his claim while they investigated.  He called me for assistance.  They concluded their investigation and determined that the fire started in the dryer and initially offered only $77,000 to settle the claim. After my negotiations were completed, the policyholder received over $160,000 from the insurance company for the damage to his home and contents.

A homeowner had suffered damage to his expensive copper and tile roofing system from hail and the insurance company, after hiring an inspection from a company that they represented to be “engineers”, denied his claim and refused to pay him anything.  His roofing contractor referred him to me for assistance.  After my negotiations were completed, the policyholder received over $28,000 for the repair of her roofing system.

A homeowner suffered damage to his expensive roofing system from hail and his insurance company refused to pay anything for the damage.  His roofing contractor referred him to me for assistance.  After my negotiations were completed, the policyholder received over $86,000 for the repair of his roofing system.

A homeowner had lost everything that she owned in a fire that had occurred a year and a half prior and for which she had not received what she believed to be the full amount of her loss.  She contacted me for assistance.  After my negotiations were completed, the policyholder received an additional amount of over $37,000 for unpaid contents.

A homeowner had suffered damage to the interior of his home from a hailstorm that had damaged his roofing system.  His insurance company hired an engineering company to evaluate his roof and they reported to the insurance company that there was hail damage to the roof but, in their incorrect opinion, not enough to consider the roof to be damaged, according to their own arbitrary definition of “damage”.  The insurance company improperly used the engineer’s report to deny the claim.  The homeowner continued to fight the insurance company for two years until his roofing contractor suggested that he consult with me to see if I could be of assistance to him.  I negotiated a payment of over $25,000 for the homeowner to receive to repair the roof.
