Question

Does anyone know what my recourse is when Segwick denies a claim? My hardwood floow was damaged after my refrigerator water line leaked not once but twice! The first time the tech repaired the leak and then 5 months later it sprank a leak again! This time the tech replace the line and he opened an axikit took pictures of the damage and even had us sign a release. He gave us the information to call Segwick who were very nice to start I followed all there advice did what they told me so I was very surprised to get a letter saying the claim was denied. They even went as far as saying I was not telling the truth about the incident as they said they talked to the service tech! After that Segwick has been very rude and told me they really did not care what I did next. I called corporate and they also said Segwick makes the decisions. So needless to say I have not had anything done and my hardwood floor looks terrible and I am left to deal with this alone. Anyone that can give me any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. My next step would depend on the cost of repairing the damage. I would either use small claims court or consult a lawyer.

    The insurance company can deny a claim, but that is not the last option. Sears, and their repair service are both jointly and individually liable for the damages

      Well I always hope people are truthful however I always seem to be disapointed. Since I received your last message NO ONE from Sears has contacted me as to the next step in getting my floor repaired. You have my name my email and my phone number to reach me but NO ONE has. What do I need to do to get someones attention to HELP ME? PLEASE can someone contact me?

      I hope I hear from someone soon. It is very sad that Sears does not stand behind its customers. I feel that no one wants to do anything to help. So I hope I am proved wrong and someone will get involved and do the right thing!
