How Allstate Handles Wrongful Death Claims

Allstate boasts that they have been “protecting people and the things most important to them for more than 85 years.” However, contrary to their “good hands” marketing campaign, many consider Allstate one of the most difficult insurance companies to deal with when pursuing a claim. Often, customers and innocent third parties suffer while Allstate minimizes settlements and tries to deny claims in order to increase profits and keep shareholders happy.

Large insurers employ a system known as The Three D’s: Deny, Delay, Defend. Insurance companies defend the use of this system by claiming that it protects customers from fraudulent claims. Keep this in mind when negotiating a wrongful death settlement with Allstate.

The first offer on your claim will rarely be in a reasonable range. Don’t let the insurance adjuster tell you the value of the settlement. Be prepared to go back and forth in order to get the compensation you deserve. Once you know how much your claim is worth, be patient. Often, the insurer will try to delay settling the claim so that you feel pressured to take a lower amount then you are entitled. Remember this tactic and don’t agree to a settlement just because you have been conditioned to think this is all that will be offered.

Do I Need a Wrongful Death Attorney?

Dealing with the death of a loved one is devastating, and the last thing you need is to have barriers put between you and the compensation you need to get back on your feet.

Having an  attorney to deal with the insurance company allows you to focus on what is important. Whether you get help from an experienced lawyer or go it alone, be patient and persistent.
