FEMA to widen review of Hurricane Sandy claims

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 at 6:31 pm    

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has expressed its plan to review as many as 144,000 flood insurance claims that might have been cheated out of flood insurance benefits, the International Business Times reported on March 11.

In a meeting with four New York and New Jersey senators, FEMA said it will extend the coverage of its corrective action from the 2,200 households that filed lawsuits to up to 144,000 households who think they have been cheated with their Hurricane Sandy claims. FEMA has been criticized for allegations that the private flood insurance companies that service its National Flood Insurance Program tried to offer the lowest amount possible to homeowners by altering damage reports.

The legal team at Williams Kherkher believes that flood insurers acting in bad faith should be held liable to the fullest extent permitted by the law. To learn more about taking legal action after being treated unfairly by a flood insurer, call us at 888-384-6376 today.
