The bottom line is that Allstate is an insurance company, a for profit business. While Allstate insurance adjusters may have worthy intentions, they attempt to shift the financial burden and responsibility to the injured victim in many cases. In doing so, they seek to minimize payouts to policyholders who are injured.Allstate Uses an Algorithm to Determine a Claim’s Worth?
Allstate generates the first settlement amount that they offer customers using Colossus, a computer system that determines the worth of an injury claim. Some have criticized Colossus for regularly and unfairly reducing claim amounts below the actual value of the claim. Some have also criticized Allstate for aggressively defending the calculations made by Colossus when injured parties challenge the settlement amount proposed by Allstate.
A computer system will not always accurately calculate your claim. Arnold & Smith, PLLC knows how to fight determinations made by Colossus. We assertively fight for our clients to receive the most amount of compensation possible for their injuries.It is Wise to Speak with an Attorney Before Accepting an Allstate Settlement
