The Claim Game: A Homeowner's Guide to Avoiding an Insurance Catastrophe (Paperback)
In these troubled economic times a home is a precious commodity. Protecting that investment has never been more important for homeowners and property owners. When Mother Nature or good old fashion bad luck cause damage to a property, homeowners turn to their insurers to help them restore their property. Insurers, meanwhile, are as equally interested in enhancing their bottom lines as homeowners are in protecting their investment. When these interests collide, the claim game begins and the fight to protect your home and get what is owed you becomes a high stakes game of chance. Without the right guidance, without knowing the Rules of the Game--rules written by and for the insurers--you could find yourself on the losing end.
