Allstate Charged With Fraud -- Hit With BIG Verdict
Chiropractic patient Michael was driving eastbound on Pico Blvd. in Los Angeles when he was rear-ended by a white SUV. The SUV took off and fled the scene. Michael filed an Uninsured Motorist claim against his insurance company, Allstate.
Allstate claimed that Michael was making a fraudulent claim. Allstate argued in arbitration that Michael had a similar claim in 2016 and since raised his med pay from $5,000 to $25,000. Allstate stated Michael raised his Med Pay to commit fraud. Allstate also claimed that Michael’s injuries were pre-existing.
Michael took the case to formal arbitration and the arbitrator awarded $159,508 against Allstate.
