A Car Accident Attorney’s Perspective On Geico about Claims and Settlements
GEICO is the third largest private passenger auto insurer in the United States, providing auto insurance coverage for more than 11 million policyholders and insuring more than 13 million cars. Since 1996, it has been a member of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway group of companies. Since May 18, 2009, GEICO began providing online quotes to Massachusetts drivers and has grown tremendously over the last several years by virtue of their successful marketing involving their British speaking Gecko.
When they first started in Massachusetts four years ago, GEICO was very easy to deal with in settling GEICO claims. Prior to this, our car accident lawyers rarely filed suit in GEICO claims. But GEICO has had a paradigm shift and started fighting personal injury claims across the board with more aggressiveness to the point where we have to file lawsuits in most accident claims involving GEICO.
Based on our experience, our lawyers seem to think that GEICO claims adjusters are quite easy to work with in terms of attitude and their willingness to promptly return calls, which handles their bodily injury insurance claims in Massachusetts out of Buffalo NY. But really, our car accident attorneys have only one area of contention with GEICO: the value of personal injury cases in Massachusetts. Which is truly what car accident claims are all about in their ultimate analysis. Therefore, many of our clients who have claims against GEICO chose to file a lawsuit, as opposed to settling their accident claim with GEICO.
