Low Flo

In case you hadn’t figured it out from the corporate name, Progressive Insurance is not your friend. There are several reasons underlying this assertion:

Chairman of the Board at Progressive, one Peter Lewis, has contributed $2.5 million to Soros-backed Moveon.org and $3 million to Soros-backed “Americans Coming Together”. How “progressive” can you get?

But it gets worse:

Matt Fischer’s sister was killed in a car wreck after an underinsured driver ran a traffic control device. His sister was insured by Progressive, with coverage against collisions with uninsured drivers. So Progressive should have paid on the claim, right?

Not quite:

Carrying Progressive insurance and getting into an accident does not entitle you to the value of your insurance policy. It just pisses off Progressive’s lawyers. Here I address you, Prospective Progressive Insurance Customer: someday when you have your accident, I promise that there will be enough wiggle room for Progressive’s bottomless stack of in-house attorneys to make a court case out of it and to hammer at that court case until you or your surviving loved ones run out of money.

Which is what Progressive decided to do to my family. In hopes that a jury would hang or decide that the accident was her fault, they refused to pay the policy to my sister’s estate.

At the trial, the guy who killed my sister was defended by Progressive’s legal team.

If you are insured by Progressive, and they owe you money, they will defend your killer in court in order to not pay you your policy.

Ah, you’re just killing us, Flo!
