STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The national disaster recovery law firm of Ellis, Ged & Bodden, P.A., today filed more than 30 lawsuits in New York courts against insurance companies that are not playing fairly with home and business owners still reeling from Superstorm Sandy’s devastating assault on the Northeast coastline.
“These people need help, and their insurance companies are just not doing right by them. Someone has to speak up for them.”
It’s been nearly a year since Sandy wiped out homes, communities and livelihoods in October 2012, and thousands and thousands of people in New York and New Jersey continue to struggle to pick up the pieces of their broken lives. This is a trying time, and for many, the insurance companies they believed had their backs, the ones that held the storm coverage they’ve paid for all these years, are not paying fairly and equitably under their plans.
With offices throughout New York and New Jersey and led by New Jersey native C. Glen Ged, Ellis, Ged & Bodden represents not just individual home and business owners, but large apartment complexes, commercial buildings, homeowners associations and other multi-unit operations. Over the past 11 months, the firm has seen firsthand how insurers have denied so many hard-working Americans the coverage they paid for under the plans they purchased. Many property owners are still uncovering damage that was either inadequately assessed or buried under other more visible wreckage, and they’re finding legitimate claims denied or shortchanged for unjustifiable reasons. With negotiations with these insurers going nowhere, the firm had no choice but to file suit to seek the justice these people deserve.
“It’s been heartbreaking to watch,” Ellis, Ged & Bodden CEO C. Glen Ged said. “These people need help, and their insurance companies are just not doing right by them. Someone has to speak up for them.”
At Ellis, Ged & Bodden, P.A., the firm takes a comprehensive approach, hiring a team of experts -- a meteorologist, structural and electrical engineers, and cost estimators – to conduct a detailed inspection of a client’s property, assessing the damage and the true cost for repairing it. If those estimated costs are higher than the insurer’s settlement offer, EGB aggressively pursues the higher amount. Clients bear no upfront costs and pay nothing unless EGB wins an award for them.
