Can Your Auto Insurer Alter Your Insurance Policy without Your Permission?

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Apr 23, 2014 2:36:52 AM

As any experienced personal injury attorney will tell you, dealing with insurance companies is no easy task.  Whether it’s another driver’s insurer or your own, insurance companies are always happy to accept premium payments, but are ready with a dozen arguments when it comes time to pay your claim. 

One recently-seen argument involved an insurance company that sent a “policy amendment” to their insured in the middle of his policy period.  This individual was subsequently injured in a car accident and filed a claim with his insurance company, only to have the insurance adjuster tell him that there was no coverage because of that “policy amendment” letter.  In other words, even though the insured accident victim had never agreed to any change in terms—he merely received a letter in the mail—his insurer refused to provide him with the coverage he had purchased.

Last week, we kicked off the month of December by explaining some of the benefits of Ohio’s new car insurance liability limits.    While talking about car accidents around the holidays may seem out of place, recent statistics show that, for Ohio and Cleveland residents, this is exactly when the topic is most relevant.  This is because last year more accidents occurred in December than in any other month.

According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, 28,404 crashes occurred in Ohio in December 2012.  This was the only month in 2012 to eclipse 28,000 crashes.  And January 2012 saw a total of 26,781 crashes throughout the state, coming in as the third most dangerous driving month of the year.  The Christmas and New Year’s holidays alone combined for a total of 5,147 crashes.
