Many business owners have policies issued by AIX Specialty Insurance Company, a member of the Hanover Insurance Group. AIX is a large specialty insurer that advertises itself as a company that is very discerning and stands by its customers’ insurance policies with quality and expertise. Despite their advertising, many AIX policyholders come to find less-than-promised coverage under their policies in the event of commercial property damage.
Our bad faith attorneys’ experiences with AIX indicate that the company, along with several other major insurance carriers, commonly undervalues property damage claims caused by natural events. These problems aren’t limited to just AIX; we have seen that these same practices taint their related companies as part of the Hanover Insurance Group.
Although other parts of the Hanover Group family of insurance companies are licensed and authorized insurers, much of Hanover’s insurance business is written through AIX Specialty Insurance Company, which operates as a surplus lines insurer. That means AIX is exempt from many of the rules and regulations that govern admitted insurance companies. By using its AIX subsidiary in this way, Hanover avoids having to abide by consumer protection regulations, since much of the insurance written by AIX could just as readily be written by a licensed insurer or even a different Hanover-owned entity. Yet despite its unlicensed character, AIX is a subsidiary of Hanover, so all of the profits end up in the same place.
Very few insurance companies are permitted to establish subsidiaries that don’t need to follow the rules and regulations of the states where they do business, simply as a way to avoid oversight and make more money. This is precisely what Hanover has done with AIX, to the detriment of business policyholders.
Insurance law is clear that an insurance company like AIX is required to show reasonable cause for denying or delaying the payment of a valid claim, if the damage is covered by the policy. By delaying, underpaying, or denying a legitimate claim while knowing it should pay or without investigating the claim, an insurance company is engaging in bad faith activity, thus resulting in increasing insurance claim disputes with AIX. If you are offered a low-ball amount by your insurance company, Raizner Slania can help you fight for the full amount to which you are entitled.
