An article ran in February 2017, that explains why people need experienced insurance lawyers to help with their insurance claims. The article is titled, State Can’t Help With Most Unpaid Insurance Claims.

In the spring of 2013, a storm swept through pummeling hail down on Carol Fredenburg’s house. A roofing contractor told her the roof needed replacing but when she filed a claim with State Farm, they told her the damage only affected part of her roof and they would not pay for the entire roof to be replaced. They estimated her repairs at $7,600, with a $2,841 deductible.
