Re: FL State lawmakers to vote on eliminating sinkhole coverage
Sinkholes a new frontier of fraud

By Fred Grimm
[email protected]

We think small. Mostly, we’re content to fake car wrecks.

Not that South Florida, led by Miami and Hialeah, doesn’t do a bang-up job staging bang-ups. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, South Florida ranks second in the nation among metropolitan regions prone to collecting insurance claims for phantom injuries in auto accidents that never occurred. The report speaks to a certain theatrical flair endemic to South Florida’s brand of insurance fraud. (Lending new relevance to the old stage expression, “break a leg.”)

But for sheer audacity, we’ve got nothing on those nice folks up in central Florida, whose insurance claims suggest the whole damn region is being sucked, homes and all, down into the very bowels of the earth.

Geologists insist they’ve noticed no particular increase in geological activity. No sudden burst of chasms, fissures, dents, voids, cavities thereabouts. Yet it was as if homeowners of Hernando, Pasco and Hillsborough counties (affectionately known among insurance adjusters as “sinkhole alley”) were living through some real life disaster movie.

The earth did not move. No more than usual. Yet since 2006, the Citizens Property Insurance Corporation has been beset with sinkhole claims. In Hernando, according to a Florida senate report issued in December, sinkhole claims have risen 375 percent, in Pasco by 187 percent, in Hillsborough by 384 percent.

We wouldn’t mind so much in South Florida (having a rather tenuous perch on the moral high ground when it comes to insurance fraud), except the state-run Citizens has also become our flimsy provider-of-last-resort for windstorm insurance. It comes as something of a shock to discover that although we’ve been bypassed by major hurricanes since 2005, our pricey public-run catastrophic insurance company has become engulfed in a financial sinkhole. Citizens now pays out about four times more in sinkhole claims than it receives in premiums.

Re: FL State lawmakers to vote on eliminating sinkhole coverage
TAMPA - Sinkhole claims have nearly quadrupled in Hillsborough and Hernando counties since 2006. Now state lawmakers are on the verge of voting on a bill that could cost you your sinkhole insurance. Hillsborough, Hernando and Pasco counties make up Florida's so-called sinkhole alley. According to a Senate report, claims doubled and tripled between 2006 and 2009. ... “Claims are coming in at an astronomical level and the money coming in the door is not enough to cover that damage because it's not priced properly."

AC and Forgotten, I don't think the ground cracking under a person happens irrespective of where a person is originally from. On the west coast of FL there are a lot of Ohioans, Canadaians, Germans, and Michigonians. If the ground is gonna crack, the ground is gonna crack.

Re: FL State lawmakers to vote on eliminating sinkhole coverage
they did this shit to us after hurricane Wilma

I am too lazy to do this but I wish I had a bookmark saved for 2008 till now 2011 of all the sink holes in Florida
it wasn't that many

and the ones I do remember they were in the STREET and what caused them was broken water lines

there were a few i remember of homes effected by sink holes but it wasn't that many
 Quoting: ForgottenMuse


stop.

i know you are afraid.

but there is no sense in fighting this current. what is happening is happening. look in towards yourself to ease your fear, these words will only strengthen it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1174439


wtf?
what are you smoking?
 Quoting: ForgottenMuse


why haven't you started smoking it is the better question.

if you deny the earth changes at this point, you can only be doing so out of an ignorance borne of fear. the only way to ease fear in any real sense is within.

People have paid insurance for years and years, now when it might be needed, they will jerk that proverbial rug? Insurance company's are right there with the lawyers, bankers and Democrats.
