For many people, selecting auto insurance isn’t exactly an exciting
endeavor. Some may see it as a requirement that needs to be met in order
to drive, while others may not think they’ll ever have a need for
it. The fact of the matter is that the insurance you choose CAN make the
difference when it matters most – for you, your loved ones, and
potentially any others who may be involved in an accident.
At Goodman Acker P.C. our Detroit personal injury attorneys have handled
many car accident cases over the years. During that time, we’ve
become familiar with various insurance companies used by Michigan drivers.
Based on our experience with insurers paying
no-fault claims, we can help local residents make informed decisions about which companies
may be better than others.
As a resource, our lawyers have compiled a list of the top ten worst insurance
companies in the U.S. based on our experience and information provided
by the American Association of Justice (AAJ). The list is based on claim
denials to auto accident victims, premium increases, and refusing insurance
to individuals who need it most.
Thousands of court documents were looked at to formulate this list, as
well as records from the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and state insurance departments,
and news reports and testimony from insurers’ former agents and
The top ten worst auto insurance companies include:
- State Farm
- United Health
- Liberty Mutual
If you currently have one of these auto insurance companies, this does
not mean your experience with them, should you ever have one, will be
bad. However, it might be a good idea to shop around and see if there
is another insurance company that may be a better fit for you. Keep in
mind that even though these companies may be considered the worst, it
is not uncommon for insurers to deny accident victims’ claims. There
may be legitimate reasons for denial, but they are often driven by an
insurance company’s desire to protect its bottom line.
Not all insurance companies are known for zealously placing profits over
people. In fact, some are quite responsive when handling claims and paying
no-fault claims. In our experience, some of the best insurance companies
for Michigan drivers include:
- Auto-Owners Insurance Company
