D.C. Hopes Judgments End Questionable Practices in Fire Cases

Date: March 20, 2004
Author: Sandra Fleishman
QUOTE: District officials hope two recent multimillion-dollar court judgments against a Bethesda businessman will halt his companies' efforts to cheat victims of devastating fires out of their insurance payments.

ABSTRACT: Though public insurance adjustors can, for a fee, sometimes be helpful in settling complex insurance claims, consumer advocates warn people who have just experienced a loss not to sign with any company that pressures them in times of stress... and to retain a lawyer if they're having trouble with an insurance company. The poor and elderly are frequently victimized.
