Safety Insurance Claims and Settlements: A Car Accident Attorney’s Perspective

Safety Insurance, a subsidiary of Safety Insurance Group (SAFT) is a provider of private passenger automobile insurance in Massachusetts. Safety Insurance Group also offers property and casualty insurance products, including commercial automobile, homeowners, dwelling fire, umbrella and business owner policies. They were incorporated under the laws of Delaware in 2001, but have underwritten insurance in Massachusetts since 1979.

Safety Insurance has approximately 11.1% share of the Massachusetts private passenger automobile insurance market, and about 11.4% share of the Massachusetts commercial automobile insurance market in 2011.

Based on our experience, our lawyers seem to think that SAFETY claims adjusters are of varied experience, many of them working there for many years and they have a desire to resolve cases when it is within their authority to do so. Also, the ability to reach SAFETY claims on the phone can be somewhat difficult, since only the particular adjuster assigned to your file can answer any questions on it and if you just have a general question you can sometimes wait for more than a couple of minutes while the phone rings for someone else to pick up. Many of the SAFETY claims adjusters authority in settling cases is at a very low range without filing suit which when filed are defended by their in house staff counsel, the Law Offices of James Breen Jr., with its central office in Boston, Massachusetts. Therefore, many of our clients who have claims against SAFETY chose to file a lawsuit, as opposed to settling their accident claim with SAFETY.
