Legislator Patrick B. Burke working with WNY Law Center to protect area home owners

(Cheektowaga, NY) - Some of the nation’s biggest insurance companies have denied valid claims in an attempt to boost their bottom lines. These companies have rewarded employees who successfully denied claims and boosted profits, replaced employees who would not engaged in such practices, and when all else failed, engaged in outright fraud to avoid paying claims. If you have property damage due to the recent snow storm and your insurance company denies your claim please contact Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke’s office at 716-858-8480. Legislator Burke is working closely with the Western New York Law Center by providing free legal counsel and a review of your insurance claim denials. “These large insurance companies make money by denying claims. Many insurance companies employ special tactics to avoid paying claims and have high powered attorneys who can skillfully skirt the law. I want to even the playing field for the people that I represent,” Legislator Burke said.
