I must have been unclear; it wasn't my intent to suggest that companies try
to get out of paying claims.  My intent was to suggest that the typical
homeowner's policy does not cover a lot of things that many people
(including me) might have assumed would be covered.

AAMOF, I've only know personally of one instance of claims being made on a
homeowner's insurance policy - and it was my mother's claim.  The apartment
building in which she lived at the time burned down.  The company
(Nationwide) was very good about it and very helpful.  Most of my mother's
possessions were OK, she was more fortunate than most of the people who
lived there, but Nationwide paid whatever damage she incurred, and they
paid her rent in a regular, commercial apartment (she had been living in a
Senior Citizen's subsidized housing) until her building was rebuilt and she
could move back into it.
