The Government Employees Insurance Company is now the second-largest auto insurance company in the United States. The Government Employees Insurance Company employs over 20,000 people. If you were injured or suffered property damage in an auto accident by a driver who was insured by GEICO, you’ll probably wish that you were hurt by somebody who was insured by a more reputable insurer.

GEICO spends about $1 billion per year on advertising, but you might have some difficulty finding a GEICO agent. That’s because most of the auto insurance that it sells is sold over the internet. A Better Business Bureau (BBB) review reveals a high number of complaints against this insurer.

In fact, there were so many complaints that the BBB only published five percent of the total GEICO insurance claims handled through its conciliation process. Of 2,314 total closed published complaints against GEICO (as of November 2016), the BBB showed 1,537 related to “product/service.” That’s a startlingly high number, but if you read customer reviews after customer reviews of GEICO’s claim service, you’ll understand that both adverse claimants and GEICO’s own insured customers are often treated with utter disdain.

Personal Injury Insurance GEICO Claims

The most important thing that you need to know about a GEICO auto insurance claim is that the insurer isn’t going to look at your best interests. It’s going to look at the company’s bottom line and insurance policy, and it will do whatever it legally can do to pay as little as possible on your GEICO insurance claim. In that regard, GEICO might not be any different than any other car insurance company.

That’s why the only way that you’ll have anybody in your corner protecting your interests in the claim process is to contact an experienced, aggressive and successful Los Angeles personal injury attorney and request a free consultation.

Don’t Harm Your Own Case

From the onset of the claim process, a claim against any car insurance company shouldn’t be handled without car accident attorneys. If you go it alone, it’s likely that you’ll cause irreparable harm to your car accident case and it’s unlikely that you’ll get paid the full value of your car accident claims or property damage. A GEICO auto insurance claims adjuster will probably want a recorded statement from you as to how the car accident occurred. The GEICO adjusters might even argue the unethical position that a statement is required, and the insurer will deny your bodily injury claim without it.

Never Give an Insurer a Statement

The fact that you were injured in a car accident due to the carelessness and negligence of somebody else should be your first indication that you need to retain a Los Angeles personal injury attorney. The fact that GEICO or any auto insurance companies want a recorded statement from you should be the second indication. Whether or not the statement is under oath is irrelevant.

The claims adjuster will be reading from a script, and the same questions will be framed differently. Those are going to cause you to give different answers. Expect those different answers to be used against you in the future to attack your credibility.

No experienced car accident lawyer would allow you to give any such statement, and those questions would not be permitted in court. You gave up valuable rights though that you’ll probably never get back. A judge will likely allow that statement to be used against you in court. A attorney knows that California law doesn’t require you to give that statement, and so does the adjuster who took it from you.

Delay, Deny and Defend

It’s unfortunate that GEICO appears to have adopted the delay, deny and defend claim strategy that was previously implemented by Allstate. Its insurance claim process seems as if it’s intended to delay the processing of GEICO insurance claims for accident victims, and then deny even a perfectly legitimate car accident claim.

That often results in the filing of lawsuits that are vigorously defended by their attorneys who are usually salaried GEICO employees rather than independent law firms that cost more money. That posture results in more lawsuits and more trials.

You Could Walk Away With Nothing on a Perfectly Good Case

GEICO undervalues insurance claims and relies on the fact that most people who make claims don’t know how to properly pursue or litigate them. Information that claimants voluntarily give GEICO is ultimately used against them in court, and medical bills aren’t admitted into evidence due to the claimant’s failure to comply with the complex rules of evidence.

All of this can leave a jury with nothing to award, even if they want to make an award. All of that anticipated loss is then moved over to the company’s bottom line. Both the adjusters and their attorneys have done their jobs, and you walk away stunned and with little or nothing in terms of compensation or bodily injury liability. A good attorney wouldn’t dream of letting that happen.
