Allstate Insurance Under Fire Again

I found the following post over at the Wisconsin Personal Injury Lawyers Blog which I think helps to further one of the objectives of this blog: to inform people how insurance companies handle personal injury cases.  Here is the post:

"Readers know what insurance companies want, as if insurers’ Katrina issues weren’t enough, and now comes a new book exposing more of the truth I tell, but this time it’s all about Allstate.

Allstate looks even worse than I had thought, which is saying a lot, based on the current issue of Businessweek’s In Tough Hands At Allstate. The article discusses the new book From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves and describes how Allstate has fought to censure the book’s publication and has blatantly violated court orders in doing so. Certainly, the article is an interesting read for those wanting to learn about how insurance companies handle personal injury claims.

It’s interesting too that Allstate’s Claims Manual has expressly stated that those represented by personal injury lawyers settle claims for 2.5-3.5 times more than those who do not have personal injury attorneys."
