Why does Allstate count hail damage against you?
I filed a claim for hail damage and now Allstate is non-renewing my insurance policy. I have filed claims in the past for pothole damage, a hit-and-run, and now hail damage. None of these claims were my fault but I'm still being dropped. Can they do that?
Insurance companies are in business to make money, so when a customer files multiple claims within a certain time frame (usually 3 years), this begins to cost the insurance company more money than they are receiving from that customer. While not every company will non-renew your policy for multiple claims, there are many that will consider 3 or more claims within a 3 year window as excessive, and thus too expensive to insure. Unfortunately, this is likely what Allstate concluded.
Good news is you should be able to find a new policy with a different provider since they aren't having to cover your previous claims, but keep in mind that any future claims can put you back in the same situation.
