Working With Attorneys
Imagine a pipe bursting in your upstairs bathroom while you’re out for the day. When you come home, your house is completely flooded with water damage severe enough to dry your savings and retirement right up. That is the reality Gregg and Cindy Comey experienced on March 7, 2013, when their new house flooded. According to a 2015 article by Eileen Frere published on ABC 7, that was just the beginning of their water woes.
Despite having paid State Farm, their insurance company, premiums for two decades, the company allegedly conspired with two so-called independent contractors to cut corners, covering up mold-related issues in order to save money on refurbishing costs. According to the article, “Instead of removing mold damage, the Comeys say [one of the contractors] sprayed a white-colored paint called Kilz to cover it up, in order to pass a mold test, which initially failed.”
Unfortunately, this type of neglect by insurance companies, landlords, and Home Owner Associations is not uncommon. In 2013, State Farm stated there were 17,900 residential water related claims in California. In many of those cases, premium-paying customers ended up stuck with an outrageous bill while mold continued to fester.
