We've seen clients get mistreated and tossed around by insurance companies like Safeco. That is, until we get involved. The attorneys at Grossman Law Offices put together a few things you should know if you want to win your case.
An Overview of Safeco Insurance
In the last year for which information is available, Safeco took in over 6 billion dollars in revenue in that one year. And from that revenue, Safeco earned a yearly profit of around 880 million dollars. Like insurance companies everywhere, Safeco makes a profit by taking in premiums and paying out as little as possible on claims - even valid claims.
This is the basic math that runs the insurance industry. Their policy holder's insurance premiums finance the massive profits Safeco and other insurers make each year. And Safeco is motivated to pay out as little as possible on the claims they receive.
Examples of Negative Experiences with Safeco Insurance
Listed below are just a handful of what policyholders and opposing parties have alleged regarding Safeco and its legal team:
- Safeco refused to pay a body shop invoice for car repair after an accident.
- Safeco did not return an injured driver's calls. Therefore, the injured driver immediately sought the help of an accident lawyer.
- Safeco offered a car owner around half of what her car was worth.
- A Safeco policyholder filed a small claim to have a chip in his windshield fixed and went through a massive ordeal that ended up with him changing insurance companies.
- Safeco treats its customers badly when they merely ask Safeco to keep its promises. It takes Safeco months to pay anything.
- A Safeco insurance adjuster would not budge on the low-cost replacement car she offered a driver whose car was totaled.
- Safeco told a driver he was insured and cashed his premium checks. But two months later when he filed a claim, Safeco had never heard of him.
- Safeco gladly takes premium payments, but they are in the business of not paying claims.
- A Safeco adjuster talked down to an injured driver and tried to intimidate her. She got help in the form on an experienced lawyer.
