I was in an auto accident at five miles per-hour; an accident caused by a jay-walker. Other car, a truck, had slight dent on bumper. Other driver said he was not injured in the police-report. Allstate sent the other driver a check for $700 to cover "any injury" and then raised my rate $1, 000 per-year. Fortunately, the other driver was honest and sent the check back to Allstate saying, "I told you I was not injured." Yet, Allstate still kept the accident as an injury accident and still kept my $1, 000 rate increase. Fortunately, I had a friend who is an insurance broker who told me Allstate had filed an injury-accident with DMV. I telephoned Allstate and they did a lot of lying and trying to blow me off, until I threatened to sue Allstate for fraud, so Allstate finally changed the accident to "non-injury", but only reduced my rate increase a couple hundred dollars. I wrote the State Insurance Commissioner who refused to investigate Allstate's insurance fraud. State of California offices only send out form-letters and shuffle papers. I have since switched to another insurance company, and at a much lower rate.
Allstate might sound like a good Insurance Company, but be careful with what they might really be offering...
I notified the texas department of insurance and filed a complaint for fair market value of which I received thru the national automobile dealers association (Nada) with a valuation rate. Since allstate adjusters are company generees their first offer of $1350.00 was not even in my ballpark of figures. It took me 4 (Four) months and a lots of brain work, but I got a settlement of $2988.00 for my 1982 ford thunderbird. Oh by the way I still have my 82t-bird to repair once I locate body parts.
I have been trying to settle and get an answer to my claim against Allstate. They have been stating to me. That they cannot get in touch or specifically locate the policy for there insured. And that it may take up to 30 days to do so. They stated to me. There is an investigative team on this task for the last three days, but I still have not received an answer. Am I being mislead?. And what am I to do?.
My car was wrecked on 8/27/08. I was told it could take up to 4 days to be looked at by an adjuster and it took 5. The adjuster took 3 more days to submit his estimate to my insurance. I had someone 2 days later after my calling to give me their "book" value of what they were going to give me on my totaled out car. The car was less than 2 months old. I recieved a letter of the estimation. I found out that I had recieved the wrong estimate on my car. It was a S seriers worth about $1500 - $2000 dollars more. I can't get anyone to return my calls from the claims office. I'm having to pay for a rental car out of my pocket each day I'm with out a car and the finance people won't talk a settlement until they recieve a check from the insurance. CAll it due process but it's costing me time and money. I didn't have to gap insurance (which I wasn't offered by the finance people or my insurance until after the wreck) I didn't even know my insurance company carried it. Now no one from the claims office will return my calls about the wrong appraisal or a difference of the totaled out amount. Slow, slow, slow, Oh yeah, they did want immediate approval from me to move the car from the collision shop holding it because it was costing them $20.00 a day. I went and got my stuff out the very same day they called me. ?No one seems to care as long as it's not affecting them.

I encountered a total loss on my 2006 Ford f-250 p/up truck. They offered me $6000.00 less than the cost to replace it, and have offered less than a third of the cost to replace my heavy duty bumpers, tool box, and lumber rack. They used one comp over 200 miles from where I live. Yet, they can not provide any comps in the Dallas Fort Worth area. I have been with out a vehicle for nearly a month and to protest this will take another 3- 4 weeks.
I am a reasonable person, but they are absurd and will not reason with the facts.
I was hit by a driver from behind on the expressway who had no insurance, and I had to sue my own insurance company which is Allstate.
They put me through the ringer in order to get paid
They put in there computer that I was at fault and I was hit from behind
And know I am having trouble getting coverage, they also added a lot of speeding tickets which I never got.
How is this possible, can I sue for defamation of character?
Is this retaliation because I sued my own insurance company.
Please tell me what can I do.
On Dec 27, 2007 I was involved in a auto accident. I was rearended by a 16 year old female driving her parents vehicle. I was stopped in traffic at a traffic light for about 8-10 seconds, when I saw the other driver approaching me at about 20-25mph with no intentions of stopping, I turned and looked her in the eyes at the time of the impact. She was cited for being the cause of the accident, and subsequently went to court and was also found responsible in traffic court.
Since then she has changed her story at least 3 times, and her parents refused to allow her to the authorities, and her insurance company about the accident. My back was injured in the accident, and my truck sustained about $3k in damages along with about $3500 in diminished value (proof from an appraiser), because it was brand new with only about 1700 miles on the it when she hit me. I have also racked up about $10k in medical expenses, have been the chiropractor at least 22 times, had X-ray, and an MRI, and have been through 8 sessions of Physical Therapy, and was found to have some damages in my L3/L4 discs.
Even after all these treatments my back pains refuses to go away, thought it has lessened, but its still there and my daily activities have been limited, and with my recreational activities. Additionally my endurance levels are limited, and I tire easily because the pain gets to bad to continue doing what I was doing.
Allstate has done everything in their power to delay the settlement of the claim, and we are at over 4 months now, going as far as making a total insult and saying their insured is only 25% responsible.. keeping in mind, I was stopped in traffic, she was cited, and found responsible in court.
I was forced to retain an attorney for the medical/injury side, and now am having to get another attorney for the property damages.
My vehicle is still not fixed today.
Its no wonder that companies like Allstate and Progressive can advertise lower and lower rates because they pay lower and lower amount of claims. I have a police report that says that their customer hit my truck but they still dont think that they are liable for the claim! I think that this is BS.
My car was vandalized, a 2017 corolla with 15, 000 miles. The front bumper was stolen, as well as the passenger side fender, they broke the drivers side window, the front grill and damaged the hood to the car. This all happend in a parking lot of my apartment complex. Allstate's claims adjuster says that there is no way the damage to the grill and the hood was caused by the vandals/thieves, and that we had to file a separate claim for a front end collision. I KNOW for a fact that there was no front end collision on this car. the hood was not buckled before I went to bed that night and no-one drove the car. They are refusing to pay for the repairs under the Theft/vandalism claim, they are saying its a separate claim with a separate deductible.
I seriously think this is a scam to get my "one time accident forgiveness" out of the way. the damage to the hood and the support beams for the radiator were obviously caused by a crow bar. The airbags werent deployed, etc.

I paid Allstate extra for their accident forgiveness insurance. After I had my vehicle repaired, on what was suppose to be a "no fault", "accident forgiveness", Allstate cancelled my insurance. They said it was because I had two accidents in one year and they only allow one. In 2005 a truck forced me off the road and I hit a guard rail, because the driver did not stop it was considered my accident. In July I was coming out of my garage and the van sliding door got hung up on the steel frame of the garage door, this was suppose to be a non chargeable accident, but after they fixed the van they informed me they would not renew my policy. When I pointed out that this was not a chargeable accident, and I had only one other they said I had a comprehensive claim for windshield repair, which they showed on their letter to me was NA. When I spoke with the agent and Allstate headquarters, they said that it still counted as an incident, giving me two incidents in one year, and that is why they will not renew my policy. This just isn't right. I want to file a complaint with the Board of Insurance but I don't know how to locate them. Could someone please help me out with this problem. Thank You
I will never have Allstate Insurance again because of the way they treated me when I was involved in an auto accident. In Nashville, Tennessee I was stopped at an intersection with no traffic light, waiting to turn left onto a four-lane road in front of my sons’ high school. I did not see anything coming anywhere close, so I pulled out into the intersection. A car sped into the left lane of the 4-lane road, from around a slower car in the right lane, at least 40-45 MPH toward me. I was nearly in the middle of the intersection at that time. It hit my car in the driver’s side, then hit two other cars that were on the 4-lane road sitting in the left-turning lane waiting to turn onto the street I was on. I had my seat belt on but suffered neck and knee injuries, as well as a herniated disc in my lower back that was pushed forward into my bladder. I already had osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (also known as CFIDS or FMS), a chronic incurable condition which causes extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances, and severe pain. I’d just recently started on a job and had very few sick days earned, so I had to work a full-time job in this horribly painful condition. The orthopedist said he could not help my back condition, so I spent months going to a chiropractor who finally corrected the back and neck injuries. Allstate said that the driver of the car that hit me was suing ME and Allstate was on THEIR side!! I could not believe it, having worked myself in the insurance industry for over 20 years at that time. When I got my attorney involved, the driver that hit me dropped the suit against me quickly, because local law states that the first car in an intersection (in this case, that was me) always has the right-of-way. They should have yielded to me, yet there were no skid marks on the road to indicate they had slowed down at all to avoid the accident, blatantly speeding right in front of a school where they could have hit kids crossing the road to go to school. Yet Allstate still maintained that the accident was my fault, and kept an at-fault accident on my MVR for 5 years!
