Storm Damage Archives

Material Matching

The summer of 2017 has been filled with severe weather storms across Minnesota.  Thousands of homes have been affected by hail and wind damage.  For those with homeowners insurance policies, one of the most common issues is whether the policy provides coverage for "matching" the existing material (like siding, roofing, windows, etc.) when repairing the storm damage.  For example, whether an insurance company can replace broken pieces of white siding with yellow siding.

Storm Season Is Upon Us

The 2013 National Night Out hailstorm is still a vivid memory, and many of us experienced firsthand the major damage it caused our homes and personal possessions.

RSJ Does It Again

Once again, RSJ has helped a townhome association recover interest from an insurance company that failed to pay the fair value of an insurance claim for storm damage.

RSJ Obtains Published Court of Appeals Decision Clarifying Service of Process on a Foreign Insurance Carrier.

Obtaining proper service of process on an out-of-state insurance company is one of the more technical issues involving lawsuits against insurance companies. Service of process is how a lawsuit is commenced, and therefore how a Court obtains jurisdiction over a Defendant. The controlling statute, Minn. Stat. ยง 45.028 requires service upon the insurance company's registered agent, by certified mail. The statute also requires the Plaintiff to send a copy of the service letter (or process) upon the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce, also by certified mail.
