Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi and welcome to JA.My name is Ray and I will be assisting you tonight.My syncere sympathy for your situation and dilemma.
Here you have a couple of issues.You would want to look at the limits on dwelling coverage to see what the policy limits are.The replacement value has a dollar cap.If this is $320k then that;s all they will pay.As far as the contents that is separate set of problems.I would file a complaint with the state on those issues such as no email , lack of claim adjusting here on the contents.It has been my experience that this gets you a better "attitude" with your insurer and a "renewed sense of customer service".They have to respond to the state and they can be fined and have rates affected too.Overall it will hopefully effect a chance and resolution.
You would file that here.
I would then draft your letter to the insurer advising you have filed a complaint here due to their failure to adjust your claim timely and to work with you to expedite fair resolution, etc.
See if this doesn't get you the action you are seeking--that is payment for all your contents.If they try to low ball you on these file a second complaint again arguing they are not fairly adjusting your claim ,etc and claim retaliation.Again hopefully this will not be necessary.
If you need assistance or to check on your complaint here is that number.
If you would like to contact a Consumer Protection representative, call toll-free in Kentucky 800-595-6053 (option 1) or 502-564-6034.
You have rights here to receive the compensation for both your property limits coverage and the contents as well.I am so sorry that you a re having to go through all of this.I have found getting the state on their case improves their attitude and claims resolution time.
I appreciate the chance to assist you tonight.It has been my pleasure to do so.Thanks again.
I am still around here.Please let me know if you have more follow up.
Usually the company once they get a complaint like this assign you a new adjuster again with a better attitude.They very much then try to resolve it expeditiously..
I hope that is the case with your situation.You certainly have suffered enough here.Good luck with all .
Thanks for the chance to help .
