The Aftermath Of Hurricane Sally

Almost two weeks have passed since Hurricane Sally ripped across Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Though the storm is long gone, the damage continues to reveal itself. Recently, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Geodetic Survey (NGS) released aerial footage to show just how hard the storm hit Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. As the images continue to be released to the public, our understanding of the storm's effect continues to deepen. HOW MUCH DAMAGE DID HURRICANE SALLY DO? It has been reported that two lives have been lost due to the intensity of this storm. One day after the hurricane made landfall, about half a million people were without electricity in the southeast. Pensacola and the Gulf Coast were hit with so much flooding that the water reached the door handles of vehicles in most areas. Pensacola experienced an average of four month's worth of rainfall in a total of four hours. Business owners reported having to use chainsaws to cut through the wreckage to enter their buildings. In addition to all of this damage, new concerns have grown as the water has displaced wildlife, leaving alligators to roam some residential areas. The aerial footage recently released...

Insurance Company Accused of Conspiring with Adjuster Firms to Deny Roof Damage Claims

Insurance policies can be very difficult to understand. They are full of legal jargon and can be intimidating. If you have ever felt unsure about a policy, do not worry because you are not alone. When talking to an insurance agent, you may hear several different phrases thrown around that are normal terms for the agent, but they might be new to you. In these moments, you should stop the agent and ask for clarification on the term until you are confident in your understanding. For an unbiased explanation, hire a legal professional to proofread your policies. By including a third-party's take on the information, you give yourself an extra layer of protection in the event that an insurance company ever denies your claim. This can prove to be even more helpful in the event that your insurance company is conspiring with an insurance adjuster against your claim, as is the case in a recent lawsuit filed against United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. (UPC) in Florida. UPC Accused of Violating RICO Act Southern Florida Restoration (SFR) Services has filed a lawsuit against United Property & Casualty Insurance Company (UPC) and FKS Insurance Services and Property Loss Specialists, an adjuster firm, regarding...

Abbott Nutrition Announces Voluntary Baby Formula Recall

After four cases that included one death, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers to stop using certain types of infant formula as Abbott Nutrition agrees to a voluntary baby formula recall. The FDA has launched an investigation into the products believed to have caused cases of Cronobacter sakazakii and Salmonella Newport infections. The products in question have all come from the same facility in Sturgis, Michigan. So far, there have been four infant illnesses in three different states: Minnesota, Ohio, and Texas. However, the recalled products have been shipped across the United States and to outside countries. Which Products are on Voluntary Recall? The FDA is “advising consumers not to use recalled Similac, Alimentum, or EleCare powdered infant formulas.” Recalled products can be identified by the 7 to 9 digit code and expiration date on the bottom of the package (see image below).
