    AIN’T NONE OF THEM THE GOOD HANDS PEOPLE
    Or how insurance companies take your money, break their promises, and leave you stranded

    A certain insurance company doing business in the area has an approval rating somewhere in the mid-90s. They of course brag about this, and it certainly sounds good on the surface.
    However, what they don’t tell you is that those satisfied people generally haven’t made a claim against the insurance company. The majority of people who have medical or injury claims against them hate them. Not only when people sue that insurance company’s insured for causing an accident injuring them, but when their own customers put in a claim for medical benefits, or a claim for an injury.

    Perhaps worse, when that insurance company’s customer gets sued for an injury clearly worth more than their policy, the insurance company often refuses to negotiate to try and settle the claim, then refuses to pay the whole verdict when it comes in higher than the customer’s policy and leaves their customer on the hook.

    This practice had been common in New Jersey up until about 20 years ago, when a case called Rova Farms v Allstate was decided, holding that if an insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith and thus protect their customer, their insureds, then the insurance company was in fact responsible for the verdict even if it was more than the policy limits. And for years this kept insurance companies a little bit more honest, and applied a little bit more pressure forcing them to negotiate in good faith. However, lately, this 1 insurance company has decided that they were going to buck the trend, and if they lose a trial, they hang their insured out to dry, putting the insured’s personal assets, his home, his salary, his bank account, even his car, at risk of being seized to pay for the judgment.
