If you are looking to obtain full and fair compensation for an Allstate insurance claim, you may benefit from the good hands of a lawyer. Despite the company’s advertisements touting their commitment to their policyholders, Allstate is widely regarded as one of the worst insurance companies for processing claims.
“One of the Ten Worst Insurance Companies in America”
The American Association of Justice (AAG), a trial lawyers group, has rated Allstate Insurance as the worst insurance company for consumers. The AAJ said in its determination of “The Ten Worst Insurance Companies in America – How They Raise Premiums, Deny Claims and Refuse Insurance to Those Who Need It Most,” that the company does everything possible to avoid paying insurance claims, including employing hardball tactics against Allstate insurance policyholders, raising insurance premiums to maximize corporate profits and rewarding executives with extravagant salaries. The AAJ claims their 2008 determination that Allstate was the worst insurance company in the country is backed by thousands of court documents, testimonies, and complaints, and SEC and FBI documents, and news accounts of litigation arising from Allstate claims.
Bad Faith Insurance Tactics
Estey Bomberger is familiar with the bad faith tactics of Allstate and other insurance companies that deny valid claims for no reason, or unnecessarily delay processing claims. Other examples of bad faith include not adequately investigating an insurance claim, unreasonably interpreting the terms of an insurance policy, and refusing to make a reasonable settlement offer. The insurance company has a legal, contractual obligation to fulfill the terms of the insurance contract. Not fulfilling the terms within a reasonable amount of time is bad faith. The CA bad faith insurance lawyers at Estey Bomberger have obtained a number of impressive verdicts in bad faith lawsuits, including a $1,540,000 verdict against an insurer that failed to promptly pay a $10,000 underinsured policy, and a $1,275,000 verdict against an insurer that failed to promptly pay a $25,000 policy limit in a dog bite claim.
Maximum Value for Your Allstate Claim
Don’t let the insurance company tell you what your claim is worth. If you decide to handle the claim on your own, you should know what your claim is worth and how much you are entitled to for your injuries. The personal injury attorneys at Estey Bomberger offer a free consultation to determine how much your Allstate case is worth, based on your injuries and the circumstances of your accident. Your consultation should give you an idea of whether it is in your best interest to negotiate on your own without a lawyer, or if having an attorney handle the negotiations is the best way to go.
