Famous for its slogan: "Are you in good hands?", Allstate Corporation is one of the largest publicly held insurance providers operating both in the US and Canada. Founded in 1931 as a division of Sears, Allstate became its own separate entity in 1993. Allstate is recognized as a leading US business via its ranking on the 2018 Fortune 500 list as #79. With headquarters in Northfield Township, Illinois, Allstate earned $38.5 billion of revenue in 2017 and compiled $112.4 billion in total assets.
The name Allstate was first applied to a brand of tires manufactured by Sears in 1925. After the success of Allstate tires, five years later Allstate Insurance Company was established with the goal of selling auto insurance by direct mail and the Sears catalog. Over the years, Allstate grew more profitable and bought numerous companies, including Esurance. In 1993, Sears sold a major chunk of Allstate when it went public, making it the largest IPO to date.

In this modern age of advancing technology, you may be surprised to learn that Allstate, like most major insurance companies, uses a proprietary computer algorithm system, aptly named “Colossus,” to determine the initial settlement on any claim. In fact, in 2010, Allstate faced a class action lawsuit on behalf of 41 states regarding unethical use of Colossus – which resulted in a $10 million settlement payout.
You can talk till your blue in the face to a computer, but chances are it will lack empathy for your situation. And while the Allstate claims adjuster will appear to be your friend, through trained tactics in “niceness”, as much as they might want to help you they are beholden to reduce your payout as much as possible.A Good Lawyer Helps You Fight Back
Allstate is well-known for fighting claims, a practice that was parodied in a book called From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves, which describes how Allstate hired a consulting firm to develop profit-boosting strategies aimed at reducing claims’ payouts. According to the book, the main thing Allstate learned and implemented in their operating procedures was a variety of strategies on how to offer claims settlements that were significantly lower than what is reasonable.
A good Seattle auto accident injury lawyer will send a clear message to the Allstate claims adjuster that you are serious about filing your claim and that they won’ get away with any funny business. Damages for which you can sue include:
- Medical costs for doctor visits and operations caused by the accident;
- Money lost due to time missed at work;
- Therapy or psychiatry bills related to undue mental suffering (including PTSD and other anxiety and trauma related conditions);
- Loss of future earnings due to serious injuries precluding your ability to continue the work you did up until the time of the accident;
- Psychological and emotional suffering caused by the accident;
