Can you imagine the Allstate Insurance Company running an ad explaining that it is trying to deduct labor costs as depreciable items when making a home-based claim? Allstate runs television ads that try to warn against "cheap" insurance but fail to disclose that it instructs its claims adjustments to cheaper their insurance product in paying their customers' insurance claims.
Most, but not all, insurance companies sell "replacement cost" insurance that really does not replace, because the small print policy allows but does not force them to just pay the actual cash value of a claim until you actually replace or repair the injured property. Some insurance companies sell true replacement cost insurance and pay full replacement cost coverage immediately after a loss. Chubb and AMICA are examples of companies that honestly advertise and pay due to compensation costs.
I always learned that an insurance company could only write off the physical costs of materials that they age to determine the actual cash value. Some insurance companies are now challenging this long-term insurance concept, and some have also changed their little pressure to allow a dirt hole and lower labor.
Merlin Law Group recently filed an amicus letter on behalf of United Policyholders on this issue. We enclosed the 1
Some insurance companies claim managers of some companies have their creative insurance lawyers argue the opposite and against their customers' interests to degrade the labor force. Allstate and other insurance companies obviously do this. These insurance companies and their agents should be honest and warn their customers about this claim conflicting tactics that cheaply insure the insurance they sell. Unlike Allstate, many insurance companies treat their customers fairly and do not depreciate labor.
United Policyholders are a wonderful organization and the best in the country to look out for policyholders' interests. We voluntarily voluntarily volunteer our expertise and time to help with this brief and explained to the court how sole policyholders advocate for policyholders' interests in such cases:
The UP claims that its participation and briefing will help the court answer the question to the court which has not yet been finally answered in Ohio. The issue in this case – depreciation of labor and other non-physical items associated with actual cash flow adjustments of homeowners' claims – has significant implications for Ohio policyholders. When insurers reduce claims payments by depreciating labor and other non-physical cost items, they fail to fulfill their obligations to reimburse insurance for a necessary cost to recover insured assets for loss conditions. This is a jurisdiction where UP and signed lawyers say it would be beneficial for the court to let the policyholders' perspective be heard.
As a defender of insurance consumers around the country, UP has a substantial interest in the result of this case. Its brief will help the court by submitting comments other than those that should not be highlighted. The court should consider.
The undersigned advisor to the UP has significant experience in rights insurance against policyholders against large insurance companies, such as the Allstate Indemnity Company, and the eight affiliated companies involved in this appeal and honestly and faithfully that they will be able to assist lawyers in analyzing insurance issues in it here the case and their public political consequences in a way that compliments and dovetails with the arguments raised by the lawyer for the parties. Counsel for the UP is preserved pro bono and will not accept any money for its legal work in this case.
