Hurricane Harvey dumped trillions of gallons of water on South Texas and ripped buildings apart with 130 mph winds, starting a domino effect that left entire communities devastated. Harvey is about to do something else too—reveal insurance company practices for being unethical, greed-driven tactics. Since the mid-1990s, insurance companies silently remade themselves into profit-driving machines by delaying claims, pressuring businesses into accepting settlements significantly smaller than deserved.
With a new industry-wide focus on maximizing revenue instead of providing a service, agents were trained to sell policies that they never intended to fully pay. They knew adjusters were being trained to offer low-ball settlements and delay claims for weeks or months, so agents started offering commercial coverage that was clearly never going to provide for a business’s needs.
The approach worked: the insurance industry made billions in revenue, while individuals and businesses were left on the hook for losses they thought were covered. Business interruption claims were left unpaid or were delayed for years, despite many firms paying tens of thousands of dollars in annual premiums. Ex-adjusters from multiple national insurance providers revealed that they were instructed to deny claims or falsify damage reports—meanwhile, insurance companies made it so costly to sue them that many lawyers turned down cases. If your insurance agent is handling your case poorly, it may not be an accident—it might be their strategy. If that’s the case, you might have grounds to hold the agent accountable in court for your losses.
