How to Check or File Complaints Against an Insurance CompanyNot all car insurance companies are the same.
Some companies take pride in customer service while others try to make your life hell once you file a claim.
When comparison shopping for car insurance, you may see some huge differences in pricing.
It's not always a good idea to go with the insurance provider that has the lowest rates. You should check their complaint history first and make sure you can trust them to take care of you in the event of an accident.
The most common car insurance complaints are:
- Delays in Claim Handling
- Denial of Claims
- Unsatisfactory Settlement Offer
- Rate Increases
You can check or file complaints for insurance companies at the NAIC Consumer Information site.
In general, if it's a well-known car insurance company such as AllState, Geico, Progressive, Nationwide, and some others, you can be more confident they won't screw you over.
But if you see really low rates from an unknown company, make sure to check their complaint record before buying.
