One way to protect yourself from personal injury and property damage is to have quality auto insurance from a reliable, financially sound insurance company. Here are six tips to help you avoid an untrustworthy insurance company.
1- Most Importantly, do not choose auto insurance based solely upon price. Sometimes what you pay for is what you get and cheap isn’t always best. Buy the best insurance that you can reasonably afford.
2- Research how long the company has been around. Most likely, if they have been in business for a decade or less, they may not be well funded. This means that you might have difficulty getting payment for valid claims.
3- Find out whether they have stockholders. A public insurance company is obligated to make a profit and satisfy the demands of their stockholders. Therefore, they may not be trying as hard to meet the needs of their insureds like you.
4- If they offer weekly or bi-weekly payments, they may be targeting or even preying upon a certain ethnic or economic group and may not have a track record of paying valid claims.
5- If you have never heard of the insurance company, chances are, they an untrustworthy company that may not have the funds to pay for personal injury claims.
6- Read online reviews from their customers. Keep in mind that the people who are the most vocal about a company feel that they have been mistreated in some way. Read WHY they are upset to evaluate for yourself whether or not their discontent is an important issue to you for picking an insurance company.
