HILO, Hawaii, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nearly 800 homes in the Puna District on Hawaii Island have been destroyed by fire and other causes in the aftermath of the Kīlauea eruption. Dozens of Puna homeowners who lost their homes carried a homeowner’s policy with Lloyd’s of London who has failed to honor local homeowners’ certificates of insurance, according to a lawsuit filed in Hawaii’s Third Circuit State court today.
“As one of the few home insurance providers in the Puna area near the Kilauea Volcano, Lloyd’s of London, their underwriters, their agents, their adjusters, and affiliates have utterly failed to honor commitments and assist homeowners. Lloyd’s has failed to pay displaced homeowners even the basic living expenses promised in their policies in the aftermath of this terrible human tragedy,” said Jeffrey Foster, an attorney representing homeowners who have lost everything.
