Allstate insurance is very quick to cancel policies if premiums aren’t received on time, but very slow to pay claims when their insured’s file a claim. Many Allstate policy holders found this out the hard way after hurricane Harvey.
Since we have had dozens, if not hundreds, of personal injury cases against Allstate over the years we have seen firsthand the decline of this insurer. In one recent case we had against Allstate insurance, the insurance adjuster took the position that it was a “double denial” for nearly four years. This occurred, despite having the car accident captured on video which was provided to the adjuster. The adjuster conveniently “lost” the video after having promised to make a copy and Fed-ex the original back. Maybe the adjuster thought we would surely give up now. Fortunately, a copy of the video was made before it was sent to the adjuster.
After nearly four years of double talk, “double denials”, and other non-sense from Allstate, they offered us a low ball offer on the eve of trial which we turned down. Our clients received a jury verdict of $250,000 and with pre-judgment interest and costs the total amount came to almost $290,000. The pre-judgment interest was more than Allstate’s “final offer”.
Unfortunately, this is typical behavior for Allstate. Deny, deny, deny - delay, delay, delay - low ball, low ball, low ball. We are grateful that our clients had the patience to not let Allstate’s four years of ridiculousness make them feel discouraged.
Another unethical tactic frequently used by Allstate is to deny that there is any insurance when there actually is an insurance policy in effect. If you have Allstate insurance or are in a car wreck with someone that has Allstate insurance, your nightmare is just beginning. Anytime we have a case against Allstate, we just file a lawsuit. You’re more likely to find a briefcase full of gold bars buried in your backyard than a reasonable Allstate adjuster.
If you have a personal injury claim against Allstate, State Farm, Farmers, Progressive, Geico, or any other insurance company, give us a call. Don't make the mistake of attempting to handle the case on your own or thinking the insurance company is on your side. No matter how friendly they may initially seem, their goal is to deny your claim altogether or pay you the least amount possible.
