Family Displaced by Meth Lab Unable to Recover from Insurance Company

Family Displaced by Meth Lab Unable to Recover from Insurance Company

A family has been thrown out of their home in St. Peters after their neighboring duplex was raided by police. The neighbors had been using their side of the duplex as a meth lab. Police were forced to eject the family. To make matters worse, the innocent family was not allowed to take their things. The head of the family and owner of the duplex stated he filed an insurance claim which was denied. According to the duplex owner, his policy didn't cover situations like the one he found himself. The man stated he has been living in a hotel without their stuff, and he and his family have been misplaced. Meth contaminated properties can be statutorily condemned. The reason is because meth is extremely toxic and can be hazardous to the health of those occupants.

Each insurance company has its own exception to coverage, and if the policy lists something that is not covered, then the homeowner will clearly be out of luck. However, if the policy doesn't list a specific incident as a covered or uncovered, it can be wrongful denial of coverage by the insurance company to deny a claim by the homeowner. The difficult part for the homeowner is finding someone who can interpret the contract between him or her and the insurance company. This is where a skilled attorney can come in and assist the homeowner.
