Allstate exposed

Readers know what insurance companies want, as if insurers' Katrina issues weren't enough, and now comes a new book exposing more of the truth I tell, but this time it's all about Allstate.

Allstate looks even worse than I had thought, which is saying a lot, based on the current issue of Businessweek's In Tough Hands At Allstate. The article discusses the new book From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves and describes how Allstate has fought to censure the book's publication and has blantantly violated court orders in doing so. Certainly, the article is an interesting read for those wanting to learn about how insurance companies handle personal injury claims.

It's interesting too that Allstate's Claims Manual has expressly stated that those represented by personal injury lawyers settle claims for 2.5-3.5 times more than those who do not have personal injury attorneys.

Lawyers Attacked by a Christian Group?

Study the Christian Coalition of Alabama and Center for a Just Society websites and you will see common ground. CCA's mission states: "We believe that people of faith have a right and a responsibility to be involved in the world around them. That involvement includes social, community and political action." CJS's begins "Our mission is to advance and defend Judeo-Christian principles of human dignity and social justice in law, policy and the public square. "

So what is CCA doing running misguided anti-trial lawyer ads that fly in the face of justice? Read CJS's article. The quote I like states: "Stereotyping all trial lawyers as the puppet masters of the liberal agenda in order to raise funds while simultaneously depending on trial lawyers to overturn Roe v. Wade and protect religious freedom smacks of sheer demagoguery."
