At the trial, the guy who killed my sister was defended by Progressive’s legal team. If you are insured by Progressive, and they owe you money, they will defend your killer in court in order to not pay you your policy.
This man’s story about how Progressive insurance turned against his sister after she was killed in an auto accident is pretty horrific. Sometimes, paying a company to insure you doesn’t mean it will be on your side because it will be thinking more about its bottom line, and less about, well, doing the right thing.
This made me think about my life insurance policy, and about what would happen to my parents (the beneficiaries) if I were to suddenly meet my demise, and that I should ask for an “in-force illustration” showing me the value of the policy.
But, WOW, turning against your client and defending the man who killed her is just the lowest of the low. [via]
