Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Although it’s been nine months since Superstorm Sandy devastated large sections of New York and New Jersey’s coastline communities, neighbors continue to help neighbors get through bad times.  Insurance companies should be doing the same. in fact, they’re required to by law.  Unfortunately, many insurance companies have not been good neighbors and have instead left homeowners without the financial compensation they need to rebuild and repair the damage done by Hurricane Sandy.
