Auto Claims with Allstate Insurance in California

Insurance Ad Allstate is the largest publicly-held personal insurer in the U.S. and provides the third-most auto policies to drivers in the United States. For this reason, many auto accident victims must file claims with Allstate in an attempt to obtain the compensation they deserve for the damage and injuries they sustained in the collision. Because so many injured accident victims must deal with Allstate, the following is some information regarding the claims process with this company and some past settlement results.

Making a Claim with Allstate

Allstate provides an online claim management system 1 that allows an accident victim to file a claim, “gather the facts,” resolve the claim, and ask questions. While this online access may seem convenient and in you best interests, the online claims process urges accident victims to provide significant information regarding the events and details of the accident and of their injuries. In reality, it is critical for an accident victim to consult with an experienced car accident attorney before giving such information to an insurance company. A claims adjuster can take small details that may seem unimportant to you and use them to try to limit liability and reduce the amount of your settlement offer.

Settlement Offers from Allstate

In recent years, Allstate has been under fire for the way it uses software to calculate settlement offers for claims and was the subject of an investigation by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, to which Allstate paid $10 million in 2010 to settle 2 the claims against the company for improper practices handling bodily injury claims. A former claims project manager for the company even came forward 3 to work to publicly expose the way Allstate allegedly manipulates its computer programs to limit the amount it pays to claimants with bodily injuries. Because of the notoriously low settlement offers provided by this company, no accident victim should accept an offer for bodily injury until they have the offer carefully reviewed by a skilled injury attorney.

I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.
★★★★★
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.

I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
