What Are Geico Policies Like As A Large Insurance Company?
Geico is the second largest insurance company in the United States. Geico provides insurance to roughly 22 million vehicles for about 13 million people. As a company, Geico was one of the first large insurance companies to offer commercial driving policies for ride-share companies, such as Uber and Lyft.
While they are a very well known company, the impact of these insurance policies on a local level may vary. In the state of Florida, drivers are all required to have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage. All insurers are mandated to provide PIP for sickness, injury, and even death resulting from motor vehicle accidents.
According to a complaint filed in the Spring of 2020 by Florida Spine and Joint Institute (a licensed Florida healthcare provider) Geico, the Berkshire Hathaway-owned company, has been allegedly “engaging in systematic fraud by denying coverage to their customers by refusing to pay for legitimate medical services covered under the applicable policies and governed by Florida’s PIP Statute.” This means that Geico is bypassing injury claims in bad faith, and attempting to lowball car accident cases and settlements.
How Does Geico Handle Your Personal Injury Claim?
Similar to many insurance companies, Geico adjusters determine how much your claim is worth. As a new Geico policy holder, your policy limits will decide how much you must pay in an accident, regardless of who would technically be the at fault driver. These established guidelines play an important role in your injury case.
Geico’ stands for Government Employees Insurance Company, and is a conglomerate ofBerkshire Hathaway. Geico is worth over $25B. Because of this large scale net worth, GEICO has billions of dollars in their own best interest to continuously play down claims. This means that the standards should follow in suit of many other large insurance companies and that the damage payouts for injury cases, lost wages and other damages that have impacted your life should be in the form of fair and just settlements.
Unfortunately, Geico will often refuse to accept liability for injury or damages when they are indeed responsible.
The adjuster will gather your information, and then use this in the case against you in order to avoid paying the insured for their injuries and other various damages which may have been incurred. The insurance adjuster is supposed to determine the value of your policy, and how it will directly impact your compensation based on numerous factors ranging from your coverage as the claimant, to the valuation of damages to your property.
