Drones help insurance companies check damage in Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Insurance adjusters who descended on Cedar Rapids after the Aug. 10 derecho storm are using drones to check roofs and asking homeowners with less severe damage to take their own photos.

Some of this is due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has reduced the number of experienced adjusters willing to travel. But the changes also help speed up claims and get repairs done sooner, company representatives said.

“Drones or aerial imaging helps them estimate the claims,” said Scott Hauptman, vice president for claims for Grange Insurance, of Columbus, Ohio, which is working with Integrity Insurance, of Appleton, Wis., to handle at least 500 storm-related claims in Cedar Rapids. “It’s as efficient as possible and helps them (adjusters) safeguard their health.”

Cedar Rapids officials told The Gazette on Wednesday that 140 buildings are too damaged to be occupied. Several hundred more have non-structural or cosmetic damage.

Triangle tech companies move money to Black-owned M&F Bank

DURHAM

When William Spruill recently raised $3.5 million for his technology company Global Data Consortium, he began to think about where to park the company’s growing assets.

The choice was likely to be a large national bank, which could offer the best interest rates on the account. But after George Floyd’s killing in Minnesota in May, Spruill, one of the few Black CEOs in the Triangle’s tech scene, wanted his money to have more of an impact on local communities of color.

So, he opened an account at M&F Bank, a Durham-based bank that is one of the oldest Black-owned banks in the country. He ended up putting $3 million of his company’s money there, where he believes it’s more likely to be used in loans to other Black entrepreneurs and businesses.

Spruill didn’t stop there, though. After opening the account, he also challenged other members of the tech

High-risk drivers are classified as such for the following reasons:

Federal lawsuits filed in Pittsburgh against insurance companies that didn’t pay for pandemic-related losses

Following on the heels of dozens that have already been filed across the country, three potential class-action lawsuits related to covid-19 were filed in federal court in Pittsburgh late this week.

All three complaints were filed against insurance companies alleging that they failed to cover claims for losses their customers sustained because of government-ordered shutdowns during the pandemic.

In one complaint filed in U.S. District Court, James and Jessica McMenamin Jr., of Butler County, are suing Arch Insurance Co. and Arch Insurance Solutions Inc. for failing to cover their losses for a trip that was canceled.

The couple booked tickets on Jan. 23 to travel from Pittsburgh to London, and then for a vacation tour from London to Rome, departing June 18 and returning 10 days later. They booked their travel

Jujamcyn Files Lawsuit Against Insurance Companies For Failing to Cover Losses Due to the Health Crisis

Jujamcyn Theaters has filed a lawsuit against its insurance companies, Federal Insurance Company and Pacific Indemnity Company, for failing to cover losses suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic, Forbes reports.

Jujamcyn Theaters, like the rest of the Broadway houses, have been closed since March 12. While the company’s policy with Federal Insurance Company does not specifically mention pandemics, it requires the insurance firm to pay any losses “incur[red] due to the actual impairment of [its] operations, directly caused by the prohibition of access to [its] premises … by a civil authority.”

Lawyers for Jujamcyn say that the company expected Federal to pay for Jujamcyn’s financial losses, but their insurance claim was denied. Federal Insurance Company said that its policy only covers losses resulting from “physical loss or damage” to the theaters, which were
