I'm LIVID!!!

I sure hope everyone on these forums understand what these companies do to you when you QUIT!!!

Today I get ANOTHER claim on my E&O Insurance policy on a property we have NEVER been to AND we have not worked for this Service Company since 2005 +/-.

NOW everyone will say this is a simple mistake and they will not keep the claim on my old policy? YEP that is right BUT I STILL HAVE TO PAY THE LAWFIRM FOR THEIR TIME @$250/HOUR TO GET THIS MESS STRAIGHTENED OUT!!!!

I'm crazy mad over this nonsense. I also want to call these homeowners and offer my "assistance" in going after the Service Company but you and I know that the poor paid contractor will get hosed so I won't. I appears another family got a trashout done on them in ERROR.

Why would you have to pay for an Attorney to straighten out the mess... It's against your insurance company.

If you carry insurance such as York Jersey, as soon as a company like Safeguard puts in a claim, there are attorneys on retainer in Missouri, who are paid to mediate a deal with the plaintiff before it goes any further. Their fees are paid by guess who...

GTX,

Spot on. I guess I should say that I will only pay up to my deductible of $5000. But these bogus filings will bankrupt most just as fast as valid claims.

Don't really know? We were not at this property.

The point of this post was to "show" everyone what these companies can and will do when its a hungry feeding opportunity off a contracting company that has quit the business.

It appears the homeowner was "out of town" for 4 days and came home to an "empty" home. I "blackened out" the other information that made me come to this conclusion.

I will say this: If this had happened to me I would have claimed 10X more stuff had disappeared

This is causing DEEP EMOTIONAL STRESS. Dr. Phil would tell me to get this new stuff to my lawyer today

Some contractors have multiple LLCs to combat issues like this. Use a specific company for the Nationals and when you quit them, you close down the operation. Closing one down is much cheaper than a 5K claim and then you control all of the risk.
