Good... Read more »

A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It would be helpful to see the court's orders and accompanying papers.

I got into a wreck on the afternoon of 12/17. Fault wasn't determined at the scene, and no tickets were issued. I didn't immediately file a claim with my insurance due to stress and mental health issues (it was the 5-yr anniversary of my dad's death). I also needed to get a microSD... Read more »

What can I do?

A Louisiana attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. If the surgery pre-authorization you're talking about has provisions for appeal, you could discuss with your oral surgeon what an appeal would entail. At the very least, they would probably need to present... Read more »

That is a good question. I am inclined to say that unless you can show the the damage caused by the hail was due to the negligence of a 3rd party, then there is no recovery for diminution in value claim. Another way to look at this is that if you are making the claim against your own insurance... Read more »

Get written estimates for roof replacement. Make sure that estimates state: "due to hurricane damage". Send certified letter, return receipt requested, or fax, with estimate to insurance company.

You should consult with an attorney. It is odd that the insurance company is cancelling the policy for failure to maintain the building. Typically, policies are challenged by the carrier if there is a misrepresentation or a failure to pay the premium. There may be a way to force the insurance... Read more »
