As tropical storm and hurricane season is upon us with the official start date of June 1, 2012, many homeowners are still fighting their insurance companies for damages that were caused in last year’s Tropical Storm Irene.
A Connecticut man has told media that his insurance company has denied his claims and is giving him the runaround as to why his claims have been denied. Thom Thorndike said, “This is a case where we have insurance, we paid our premium and we can’t get paid.”
Thorndike is not alone. There are many policyholders who have paid their premiums on time to their insurers and expect that their insurance companies will be there for them when they need the most help. However, this has not been the case for many who are still struggling with their insurance companies nine months after the severe storms wreaked havoc on their homes. Now, they are feeling ripped off by their insurance companies.
