Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

Best & Worst Auto Insurance Companies For Michigan Drivers

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.

The Worst

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 adjusters.

The top ten worst auto insurance companies include:

  • Allstate
  • Unum
  • AIG
  • State Farm
  • Conseco
  • WellPoint
  • Farmers
  • United Health
  • Torchmark
  • 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.

The Best

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
  • Home-Owners
  • Citizens
  • Grange
  • AAA

This information is intended to be a resource for those who want to protect themselves and their loved ones in the event of unforeseen car accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a crash, working with experienced attorneys can put you in the best possible position to secure the compensation you need.
