Company denies insurance claim

Published 7:00am Sunday, July 20, 2014

I am a taxpayer and an American citizen who also pays for insurance and that’s what this letter is about.

When did Americans start bowing down to insurance companies? When did they (insurance companies) own this country? Were we all taking a nap?

I know I am not the only person who feels this way, or doesn’t know of someone who has heard of horror stories that have happened to other people.

I am referring to a family from Emmons who has lost everything they owned to an explosion in their home on Sunday, July 6.

How can you send out insurance adjusters to the home on July 7 and July 8 and tell them they are OK and covered and then on July 9 call them and tell them they have been denied their insurance claim?

How dare you put a family of seven out in the street, homeless and split apart because they have no choice?

How dare you force them to get a lawyer to get what rightfully they have coming? How can you sleep at night?

Yes, I have a personal interest in this case because it is my son and his family who lost everything they owned. You might think I am being prejudiced, but I personally know of other families who had to go through the same thing.

I do not have to name the insurance company; you know who you are.

We all have to answer to our maker someday. I will say a prayer for you because I know if I can’t do that, I will not go to heaven.

Shame on you.
