Personal Injury Legal Claims Against Allstate Insurance

Have you been injured in a serious auto accident in which either you or the at-fault driver are insured by Allstate Insurance company? Giant insurance corporations like Allstate are notorious for unreasonably denying or devaluing legitimate personal injury claims and will employ unethical settlement tactics in order to frustrate claimants. 

Washington law states that injured victims have a right to recover fair financial compensation after a serious accident. But the insurance companies believe that making the claims process as frustrating and confusing as possible will force injured victims and their families to accept less financial compensation than they deserve for their injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages.

Do not allow yourself to be taken advantage of by the profit-focused insurance companies. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is in your best interests to consult with a qualified personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling insurance disputes and bad faith claims against Allstate.

Allstate Insurance's Unethical Tactics

Allstate, like all major auto insurance companies, is known for employing a number of unethical business strategies and tactics in a concentrated effort to frustrate and confuse innocent victims who simply want justice and to receive fair compensation for their injuries and other damages resulting from an accident. Namely, these unethical insurance industry strategies and tactics include: 

  • Denying Valid Claims. Insurance companies will regularly tell accident victims that their claim has been denied, even if the claim is legitimate and the claimant is legally entitled to financial compensation as reimbursement for the damages they have suffered. In these situations, Allstate is attempting to leverage the claimant's lack of knowledge about his or her legal rights into a feeling of confusion or frustration.
  • Devaluing Claimants' Injuries. There are a number of ways that Allstate may attempt to downplay the severity of an accident victim's injuries and the other damages they have suffered. Insurers often request that victims undergo an Independent Medical Examination (IME) with the insurance company's preferred physician. They will also accuse the claimant of receiving unnecessary medical treatment or exaggerating the extent of their injuries. 
  • Delaying Progress Or Payment. An insurer like Allstate may sometimes refuse to update claimants on the status of a claim or give claimants the run-around in another effort to cause feelings of confusion or frustration. This is another sign that the insurance company is hoping that you eventually give up and agree to settle the claim for less than it is worth, which increases the company's bottom line and overall profitability at your expense.

There are a number of other unethical business tactics that insurance companies use in an effort to encourage claimants to accept discounted settlement offers. If you feel as though you are being taken advantage of by the insurance companies, it is in your best interests to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. 

Bad Faith Claims Against Allstate Insurance

Proving that an insurance company is acting in bad faith goes beyond showing that an insurance company either denied, delayed, or defended your legitimate personal injury claim.
