Md. State Insurance Administration Coming to Somerset County
PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Somerset County officials have arranged for the State Insurance Administration to meet with county residents about insurance questions related to property damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.
After Sandy, some homeowners were upset because their insurance did not cover what they expected it would. On Friday, Dec. 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., SIA officials will be at the Crisfield City Hall to answer questions.
Steve Marshall, director of Somerset County Emergency Management, said this will be beneficial for homeowners who feel they have been wronged by their insurance companies.
"We hear people say, 'We thought this would cover water damage and we found that it only covers wind damage,'" Marshall said. "So, we hear a lot of those issues and I think this will give some of these people that feel the insurance company didn't treat them right...it will make them feel better if they can talk to somebody and explain what coverage they thought they had and then the insurance commissioner can intercede on their behalf to make sure they were given a fair deal."
