Clever Marketing Slogans Prove Deceptive When Dealing with Insurance Industry
American Family Insurance touts itself as a company providing peace of mind to their customers by making the insurance experience easy and convenient. More often, we see customers whose experience is anything but easy or convenient, thus resulting in several American Family insurance complaints.
Insurance companies delay payments, undervalue claims and attempt to place blame on anything but the covered event in order to save money. They use tactics such as intimidation, delayed responses, and disputed damage values, hoping the policyholder will accept their decision and move on. These tactics are called bad faith practices, they are illegal, and you may have a valid legal claim for additional damages if your insurance company has engaged in these practices.
American Family Insurance has been accused of unethical claim denials, outrageous premium increases, policy cancellations and more. Policyholders describe experiences with adjusters who deny seeing any damage after a natural disaster, contrary to the contractor’s claim. Additionally, alarming numbers of policyholders report that American Family cancelled their homeowners policy without any basis. An insurance company’s purpose is to assist their policyholders in a time of need and make the event less stressful. American Family Insurance’s practices tend to exacerbate an already stressful time with poor customer service, penny-pinching tactics, and unanswered phone calls.
