Tips on Making Mercury Insurance Claims
Mercury Insurance Group
Mercury Insurance Group a/k/a Mercury Insurance, is not as big as many of the other insurance groups that sell auto insurance in the United States. Furthermore, they operate primarily in 11 states. Unfortunately for Texans, Texas is one of those eleven. Do not be mistaken, however, “smaller” does not mean they are “small.” Mercury Insurance boasts over 4 billion in assets and 12,500 employees and independent agents. Mercury has been in operation since 1961. They are headquartered in Los Angeles, California and are currently the fourth largest insurer there behind State Farm, Farmers and Allstate.
Mercury Insurance tends to market towards selling less expensive insurance to better drivers. They offer “premium” discounts for lower risk drivers. Many of the policies we see in Texas have been bare bones policies providing just the minimum limits and the basic required coverages.
Dealing With Mercury Claims Adjusters
Historically, some claimants have reported that dealing with Mercury Insurance claims adjusters is not always pleasant. Perhaps this is why they were hit with a three million-dollar jury verdict back in 2008, after the jury was provided evidence that Mercury training documents trained people to make low-ball claims offers, drag out claims and remind the claimants that they could be found liable at trial. Amerigraphics, Inc. v. Mercury Casualty Company, BC331524 (La. Super. Ct., Feb. 21, 2008). Don’t be surprised if they put up a fight.
