We think it is a shame that Dale is putting insurance companies ahead of people and regrouth of the Gulf Coast. He says that's no true but he actions show us different. By letting the insurance companies increase rates so high he is telling the small companies leave or pay and go out of business. The large companies will pass the huge extra cost down when the smaller companies can't because if they try they can't stay competetive. The governor is also to blame by letting this man allow the increase. We know where his interest are. There might be an increase needed but not near as high. We all lost money and have to borrow to make it. Not these big guys they just tell the goverment we need to get more money out of the people and make the suffer more. There are companies that will not return and some will have to leave. If something is not done about the large stupid increase we as a group will do everything in our power to make the US know what kind of people Dale and the govenor really are. They are for large companies and not for rebuilding and helping the people. They can talk all they want and tell lies but we will not buy it.

I worked as an adjuster in MS and LA after Katrina- (NFIP flood claims only)and encountered a few public adjusters who informed me that under current regulations they could NOT charge a the usual percentage of the settlement (5-10%)- instead they had to charge a flat fee or an hourly rate. I am curious because I have now heard that in MS Attorneys are charging 1/3 of the settlement amount plus expenses to handle wind claims that were denied or underpaid. If so it seems extremely high.
If anyone has a definitive answer regarding what limitations are in effect in MS would appreciate it. Thanks.
