A class action lawsuit investigation has been opened into whether certain insurance companies have been luring in consumers by offering a low premium, only to increase the premium by up 100% in later years without clearly disclosing this increase.
Representative complaints include:
“I got ‘Blindsided’ by Liberty Mutual; a 45% premium increase in annual premium and no claims by me, ever!”
“I left Liberty Mutual after four 20% increases . . .”
“Everything looked fine from what I could tell until I got to the third page. The total price to renew the policy [went up] 36%?!?!?” [Progressive Insurance]
Big Rate Increases on Homeowner’s Insurance may be Deceptive
Many consumers never even notice that their premiums have increased. This can be because insurance companies often disclose premiums for renewed policies in an envelope marked “This Is Not a Bill,” or because, in some cases, premiums are paid out of escrow withdrawals, or because insurance companies do not disclose that the rate is being increased.
Gibbs Law Group is currently investigating claims that these alleged bait & switch practices violate state consumer protection laws.
