A water damage claim for a pipe bursting was called "caused by a dripping pipe," the claim was denied and the mold coverage was ignored. My refund for cancelling rental insurance was held, "just in case you got future ins. with us..." My spouse had a minor fender bender and it was placed under my name as having the accident, a person not on my Deed was placed on my homeowner's insurance, an accident clearly caused by a driver running a stop sign was claimed 10% my fault and 90% theirs until I asked to speak to every supervisor they had, I was treated by two claim reps so rudely and one had every excuse not to transfer me to his supervisor. On another water damage claim, it took 3 weeks for the agent to come out and look at. I was told I was not contacted because they had the wrong claim number listed. I was also told that we would be put up for the weekend and that's it. When the plumber needed an extra day, I was told we were not getting it. I told him we were not going back to a home with no water. He said "I didn't know you didn't have water, yet the claim was for my main pipe corroding and we were in the house for those 3 weeks unable to wash clothes or dishes. I was accused of skipping out of the hotel we were put in without paying my deductible, when I was calling the agent from my hotel room. My room key was deactivated and we couldn't leave the room until it got straightened out--4am in the morning when I finally went down to the front desk and asked that I get another key activated. It took a solid hour for us to check out while we were in our coats and my child in a wheelchair.

This is wrong on several accounts. One the reading on page 12 of your insurance policy if you have what is called a HO-3 policy covers just this. I would call an attorney or a Public Adjuster in your area. If you are in North or South Carolina you can send it to me and I will have a Public Adjuster contact you back e-mail me at [email protected]
