And the PINK SNOW Fell…

This book shares the quagmire of complications presented to the Cross family when their home was collateral damage from a gas explosion. Ray and Diane struggled to comprehend being trapped in the midst of flying debris as their home folded in around them. Then, to add insult to injury, their insurance company pursued a track to settlement which included abusive distortion and penny pinching tactics that drove them to the advocacy of a public adjuster and to the courts to gain the coverage their policy promised. It is an heart wrenching story of struggle and the basis of Ray’s insurance advocacy books Fire Insurance and You, and the ebook version, Make Your Insurance Company Pay.
