Flood Of Claims Expected After Epic Boston Winter
After the Big Dig-out, it’s time for the Big Payout. Or will it be the Big Denial? New England’s epic winter is on pace to produce a corresponding number of claims as thousands of homeowners seek to repair damage. Successive storms dumped 110 inches of snowfall in Boston alone, a record for an entire season. "It’s a part-time job just to navigate it all," says Cathy Schwarz, a Plymouth resident who is working with her insurer and repair companies after rooftop ice dams caused leaks in her house. "Everybody says you’ll get through this, but all I can see is a house that’s just not livable right now."
