AllState Refuses to Settle Case For What Homeowners Ask, and then Uses
the Home in a Commercial
As storm Sandy was making its way to Staten Island, Dominic and Sheila
Traina evacuated their home and it's contents, which were insured
for $280,000. After they left, their neighbor called to inform them that
the wind had blown off their roof. No problem, they were insured by Allstate.
However, Allstate won't pay, because they claim that the damage was
from flooding. They didn't have flood insurance. However, there was
a witness to the contrary.
Allstate has offered them $10,000 to settle. Om response, Allstate has
said that the insurance company is "committed to resolving the matter
in accordance with the policy they purchased from our company."
Ok, so there is an argument to be made. Was the damage caused by the flood
or by the wind? However, Allstate has seemingly made another mistake.
In a commercial for AllState, the insurance actually used an image of
the Traina's home! Ironic!
The insurance company has stated that Allstate has made nearly $1.1 billion
in claim payments.
