USAA (United States Automobile Association)–which markets itself to current and former U.S. service members–insures property owners across the United States. Unfortunately, USAA, like other insurers, frequently produces low-ball estimates, particularly on high-value claims. Despite its efforts to market itself as a protector of current and former military families and businesses, USAA all too often shirks its responsibility to pay claims when they are needed the most.
Bad Faith Practices by USAA
In many cases, USAA employs bad faith practices that include conducting an inspection of the property at the time it is insured and premiums are paid with a resulting determination that the property is in good condition. Yet when a claim is made, USAA will often ignore its own inspections and claim that the damage was there before a storm or fire. USAA adjusters often deny claims due to disrepair or age of the property, even if the property damage was caused by an unrelated factor.

Insurance companies must also provide reasonable payment for losses so that repairs can be made. Contact us if you have experienced any of these bad faith practices by USAA Insurance:
