Sedgwick CMS
Sedgwick CMS Bad Faith Insurance Claims Lexington, Kentucky
1st of Dec, 2010 by User919635
Five months ago I was robbed by criminals who took over six thousand
dollars worth of possessions from me. They also stole my identity and
cashed several checks under my name. I have provided adequate evidence
to this insurance company (photos, lists, receipts, police reports) and
they offered me a three hundred and eighty dollar settlement. You
can't be serious. So today I sent them this letter
below. I consulted attorneys over the phone as well as in person and
they told me to take it to small claims court, where I could end up
making about seventy-five hundred dollars compared to the
three-thousand dollars that my insurance claim covers. So this just may
be a blessing in disguise. If I don't hear anything back in three
days, the small claims court papers will be filed.

What can you learn from my mistakes?

Do not by any means ever take out Public Storage's insurance coverage.

Why??

Public Storage goes through a private entity named Sedgwick CMS. So when you unfortunately are robbed or a fire happens or a flood, etc.. Do not expect Public Storage to do anything for you, because they won't. They will just refer you to their insurance policy paper, offer you no guidance and tell you to call the number and deal with them yourself. You will then be given a claims adjuster who will never answer their
direct line, nor will they return your voice-mails or emails for that
matter. Their whole tactic is to ignore you until you give up on your
claim.

My advice to you is to go through a private
insurance company, as they're less likely to be against giving
compensation for what you lost back in full and also in a timely
manner. I can only imagine if I lost something of incredible
importance, perhaps something that was needed for a health issue. It's
been four months since I contacted them and I have only been contacted a
total of three times after numerous attempts to get a hold of my
agent.

The letter is as follows:

Mr. Insurance Agent (name protected), why? Because, I know it's the companies fault and not necessarily this exact individual's.

I have consulted with a few attorneys, who in turn have informed me
that I can receive up to seventy-five hundred dollars in small claims
court for my claim. This would be achieved by filing a "Breach of
Contract" as well as a "Breach of the implied covenant of good faith
and fair dealing" with a local courthouse. This amount of money
would cover most of what I lost as well as the days of work I had to
request off to deal with acquiring a police report from a high volume department. This department had larger issues to deal with and as a result I was left standing outside of my storage facility for hours each
day until the officers were able to get to my report. This can be made evident by the owners of the Public Storage unit who saw me each day I waited. This would also in turn cover the time I had to set aside from work to consult attorneys for information regarding this claim.

I have supplied you with more than enough information to support my
claim and this has been dragged out over the last couple of months for
no reason. Not to mention your provided phone number rarely connects me
to you, but more so, your answering machine. The three hundred and
eighty dollar settlement I was offered doesn't even begin to account
for the lost items shown in the photos that were provided as well as
the police report and a detailed list which I also compiled while I was
waiting for the police to arrive. I am asking that
you re-consider my settlement to the amount in full as to avoid the
hassle of dealing with a small claims court process.

I acknowledge your concern on this matter and would appreciate a prompt response within the next few days.

Respectfully,

Josh
