Storm Help Team Launches "Hear Us!" Social Media Campaign Aimed at Empowering Property Owners and Motivating Insurance Industry to Hasten Superstorm Sandy Victims' Insurance Claims Payment

New York, NY – Storm Help Team is encouraging Superstorm Sandy victims to focus on harnessing their frustrations at insurance companies into a social media campaign aimed at urging insurers to do right by their policy holders – to institute better business practices, more thorough investigation, more detailed responses that include payments and specific itemization of what will not be paid and why, and other helpful information needed during the insurance policy claims process.
