No insurance coverage for sink hole victims in Fraser Michigan

I feel the Earth Move Under My Feet!

...So goes the famous Carole King lyrics (click here to listen). But how about the real life consequences of the earth moving under your feet, does your homeowner’s policy cover for things like earthquake, sinkholes, and collapses? 

National news has been covering the loss to the suburban Detroit neighborhood homes being swallowed up by the earth. This morning I was driving to the office and listening to the morning drive program on Detroit’s WJR radio. The talking heads were bashing the insurance industry because there is no coverage under the home policy for the loss that is happening with this neighborhood being devastated by the sinkhole eating their homes.

How can that be? How can my homeowner’s policy not offer protection for something like this?  Well the typical home insurance contract does have coverage limitations and exclusions. There are similar limitations with a business policy. These limitations and exclusions are part of the insurance contract for a number of reasons but there are still ways around the exclusions.

Trip Cancellation Insurance for Severe Weather

Posted by Zach Emly on Wed, Dec 21, 2016 @ 10:12 AM

Traveling in the winter time is always a gamble. I live in Northern Ohio, so we understand that no trip is certain. Public transit can get shut down, airplanes can be grounded, and snow storms can leave your family trapped in a hotel room. 

When bad weather strikes like this, it can ruin your vacation and leave a hole in your wallet. 

Trip cancellation insurance can help you overcome ruined plans giving you the confidence to schedule a trip when the weather could be questionable.

If you have planned an event before, you are probably aware that not everything is going to go as planned. Unfortunately, the weather, illnesses and sometimes even the guests can cause you to cancel or postpone the event.

Condo Rental Insurance

Posted by Zach Emly on Fri, Nov 18, 2016 @ 15:11 PM

Insurance for renting a condo is necessary because accidents happen.

A guest can damage property or furniture. Mother nature can damage the building and in some cases damage the property inside. A fire can occur damaging everything inside. Someone could clumsily injure themselves inside and sue the owner and renter. 

Without insurance you will have no protection against these incidents that you have no control over. Both the condo owners and those renting the condo need insurance.

This blog will help identify what type of insurance is necessary for both the condo owners and renters.

Full Coverage Auto Insurance

Posted by Zach Emly on Wed, Oct 12, 2016 @ 12:10 PM

Insurance companies talk a lot about full coverage auto insurance, but does the average consumer even know what that means?

On the surface it sounds like an total encompassing policy but in reality there is no such thing. That's right, there is no such thing as a full coverage auto insurance policy. Companies use it because it sounds good and it helps the buyer better explain what they are trying to buy. 

Using this term is not all bad though, it can actually help you get the best auto insurance coverage for your vehicles.
