Complaint: John Mullen & company delayed their adjustment report causing our claim to drag on for over 4 months forcing us to live in hazardous conditions. John Mullen & Company hired *** ***** as their insurance adjuster & investigator General Adjuster to conduct their service to ******* ********* ***** who is in charge of the ************ AOAO Association insurance of homeowners. In April of 2014 our water heater exploded causing flooding in our unit and downstairs unit triggering the associations insurance to pay for replacement of damaged flooring and drying out of unit. John Mullen & Company employee *** ***** made visit to our residence to adjust and assess the damages but failed to complete a required report to the insurance carrier causing a delay of over 4 months. We made numerous attempts at calling and emailing John Mullen & Company and their Employee *** ***** to get resolution to our insurance claim. The claim number *********** with ***** ******* of ******* ********* ***** phone#***** ******** and contacts with **** ******** of John Mullen & Company on a daily basis have continued with no resolution. John Mullen & Company has continued to keep us out of the loop in communications and have stopped returning our calls and emails as we seek to gain some clarity on the process and when our lives will return to normal. We have been living with our 4 children the youngest of which is 1 year old on dangerous floor boards with exposed rusty nails and staples. This length of time is unacceptable for the claim process with no type of communication or timeline on when we are going to get some action. We have also been told that there is dangerous asbestos in the closet which is now exposed because it has been tampered with. We are forced to live in these conditions with no idea of the long term effect on our health and the health of our children. We are reporting this because no one should have to be put through this type of hardship for an insurance policy that we pay large sums of money for on a monthly basis through the association dues. And, no one should be made to live in hazardous conditions while they wait on John Mullen & Company to provide the service that they have been hired to do without any type of standard to uphold.
Desired Settlement: We want answers which include a timeline on the completion of the claim. We are looking to get what we were promised by *** ***** of John Mullen & Company for the cost of the emergency installation of new water heater $500. We want an additional settlement which the executives of John Mullen & Company would expect if another company would have done this type of unacceptable service. We want our claim check so that we can get our lives back to normal again.
This loss occurred on 4/08/14. The carrier for the AOAO assigned the loss to John Mullen & Company on 4/21/14. The assigned Adjuster made contact with the complainant's wife on that same day and scheduled an inspection of their unit the following day, 4/22/14. Contact was also made with the Property Management Company for the AOAO and the remediator on 4/21/14 the day John Mullen & Company received the assignment. It was determined that the AOAO had a deductible of $5000 and that the complainant's carrier, ******** ********* had already issued a payment to the AOAO in the amount of $4000 which accounted for the complainants' personal policy deductible of $1000.
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
