Check out the interview with Tracy in the June issue of Risk Management Magazine:
Contractors and property owners may not be getting all they are entitled to from their property coverage in the case of faulty workmanship, according to policyholder’s attorney Tracy Alan Saxe, with Saxe Doernberger & Vita, P.C. When there is damage, policyholders often contact their insurer and give timely notice, but their claim still ends up being denied. The policyholder will take the denial at face value and not pursue it any further, instead choosing to fix the damage themselves. But this does not have to be the case. Spending this extra time and expense may be one of the biggest oversights policyholders commit.
