Insurance Claim Dispute with Hanover?
Many property owners have policies issued by the Hanover Insurance Group, a large insurer that advertises its insurance offerings as innovative and flexible specialty insurance solutions to help protect the businesses of their policyholders. They promise to protect buildings, inventory, equipment, business income, and other valuable assets from natural disaster, hail, fire, theft, and other damage. Yet, despite their marketing, many Hanover policyholders come to find that coverage under their policy is less than what the company promised in the event of property damage. Our experience with Hanover indicates that the insurance company commonly undervalues property damage claims, a problem that is not limited to just Hanover, but which is troubling, nonetheless, since they market their products as highly innovative and flexible, suggesting that policyholders can count on them to cover almost anything.
Surplus Lines Insurance Rules Abuser
Many large insurance companies have found a loophole in the law that allows them to pass insurance risks on to their unlicensed and unregulated subsidiaries. This is called surplus lines insurance, and it is designed to cover claims for unique risks that more reputable insurance companies would never cover. Unfortunately some large insurance companies are breaking these rules by passing acceptable risks to their own surplus lines insurance subsidiaries, for no apparent purpose other than to avoid regulation, oversight, and accountability. In Hanover’s case, a good amount of their insurance risk is written by a wholly owned subsidiary, AIX Specialty Insurance Company, which is not licensed or regulated by many states. Regardless of what name they are using, policyholders subject to Hanover’s tactics face the same challenges.
