Re: Allstate's Poor Practice Should be Outlawed!

My husband is a General Contractor who specializes in Insurance Restoration with 20+ years of working with practically every insurance company. It has gotten to the point that he will not even speak to an Allstate adjuster to do an estimate. He says that in his experience Allstate will deny a claim the 1st and 2nd time it is submitted, and that IF the insured submits it a 3rd time they will (grudgingly) pay 50% of whatever the estimate is to repair the damage. He's been to court more times than I can count as an expert witness AGAINST Allstate in order to get the company to pay for the homeowner's repairs.
We've been State Farm customers for more years than I can count, and I have never once had a complaint. Great rates, and fabulous customer service.
