Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether class action lawsuits can be filed on behalf of homeowners who went through their insurance to have their roofs replaced following storm, wind or hail damage. They have reason to believe an industry-wide practice is cheating these homeowners out of hundreds of dollars – and are trying to determine whether a class action lawsuit can help these people get their money back.
It is believed that insurance companies are shorting homeowners by failing to pay for the full cost of removing and disposing of damaged roofing material.

As a result, each homeowner who submits a claim to their insurance for the work is believed to be getting shorted and receiving a less than fair settlement of their claim. Attorneys believe this practice to be a deliberate attempt by the insurance company to profit at the expense of its customers.
