Rhode Island Car Accident Personal Injury News: Car Insurance Companies Make Huge Profits From COVID-19 Crisis

May 15th, 2020

Who’s making a lot of money from COVID-19?  If you read our blog, you know that car insurance companies making out big time. Less cars on the road means less claims and less payouts.  This means that we are all being charged too much for our car insurance in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The Wall Street Journal recently published a follow-up news article that, while the rest of the world suffers, Allstate Insurance Company made a rise in their net income this first quarter.… Allstate’s 1Q adjusted net income rose 47%! Their underwriting profit drastically jumped 92% to $1.34 billion.

Meanwhile, Allstate and other car insurance companies in Rhode Island are making a big deal about “giving back” some premium money to us, their captive customers (remember, we are required to buy auto insurance and the industry is supposed to be regulated by the state).

As previously reported though, it seems like a nice publicity stunt.  The small premium give backs are a small token compared to huge profits like these.  Hey Allstate, why don’t you give more of this money back to your customers?  And how about increasing your charitable giving?  Just my two cents.
