FEMA in Settlement Talks Over Sandy Flood Insurance Claims

Updated on

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is working to settle lawsuits by hundreds of Hurricane Sandy victims who challenged denials or alleged underpayments of flood insurance claims.

Brad Kieserman, deputy associate administrator for insurance at FEMA, disclosed the settlement talks during a break in a court hearing Wednesday over whether an insurer, Wright National Flood Insurance Co., concealed from a homeowner the existence of conflicting reports over damages.
