Starting in the Industry

I just recently had a friend that went thru the same thing. Got a license, went thru the CISR and then started looking for a position. Even though he didn't like it much, he took a job with Auto Insurance Discounters. Got a bit of experience. Went thru the Hartford Producer school. Finally 2 years l...

GEICO refusal to pay claim..

Someone doesn't always have to have an attorney. I know this for fact because I took on the State of Texas on an issue. No attorney. Was advised I would never get results. Bottom line..they were wrong. Took me 10 months...but it was fixed. I guess we'll know as soon as I get the results back from th...

GEICO refusal to pay claim..

Believe me..I understand EXACTLY what you are saying. Most companies/adjusters realize that it costs a lot of money and time so they think if they hold up long enough, that people will just walk away. That is the problem with our industry. I've seen claims where people were definitely in the wrong a...

GEICO refusal to pay claim update...

It goes to show, with a bit of work you can get what you need. There was an accident reconstructionist that submitted a report after his evaluation of pictures, accident site..etc. He determined that there was no way that the accident could have occurred the way GEICO's insured or her alleged witnes...

GEICO..NO WAY!

I had an accident where one of GEICO's insureds hit me. Their people have lied..denied my claim..etc. I have never been treated so rudely in my life. I wrote the Texas State Board of Insurance regarding things they did. GEICO wrote back LYING about things! And then TDI took GEICO's word and I got no...

My adjuster with State Farm is in FULL agreement for the appeal and is doing everything necessary. Even though the wording in the policy states arbitration is binding, what a lot of people don't realize is that it is basically a substitute for the court system and does not mean that you absolutely h...

Do you work for GEICO?

No, no fine..no time. Negativity about a competitor? That last post leads me to believe that you work for GEICO and/or didn't read all the facts.

Hmmm..

There was a witness on her side, which is the "friend". I even provided proof that the "witness" was GEICO's insured's next door neighbor. (note any bias here?) And there was another witness, that stated that he clearly saw her hit me. GEICO's adjuster came back and told me "...

Yep!

My insurance is with State Farm. The adjuster I have is WONDERFUL and had more than gone out of her way. She is absolutely shocked at the decision from arbitration. She said it doesn't surprise her though, that it appears as though these people just go in there, open the file, close it and just acce...
