Allstate Tries to Keep Car Accident Victims Away From Lawyers – For Money

Allstate makes a concerted effort to keep car accident injury victims away from lawyers. They do this for the simple reason that it saves them money. They state in their own documents that generally that will pay more if a motor vehicle victim is represented. Sometimes three times as much.

How Does Allstate Keep You From a Lawyer – No They Do Not Break Your Arm

Allstate brought in a concern called the Mckenzie group and they actually created a script and did role playing on how to teach Allstate adjusters to keep car accident victims injured by negligence of others away. With mounting public pressure Allstate released these documents on their site but then took them down.   Here Are the Secret Allstate Documents

As you can see the documents are so faint that they are barely legible . However I have copies of these documents and they are available on demand. In fact I wrote a chapter in a book called  Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing  which by clicking on the link you can download the book for free.

The Chapter I wrote was called, When your friend becomes your enemy, and lays out  the tactics Allstate will use to keep you unrepresented , in the dark, and ultimately forced to take a low ball offer. Don’t do it.










Distracted Driving

Distracted driving kills, plain and simple. One of the most distracting activities a driver can engage in is texting. Any activity which takes a driver’s attention away from operating the vehicle falls under distracted driving. That includes hands-free cell phone use. Ohio is one of only six states in the country which have absolutely no restrictions on texting or cellphone use while driving. According to the Ohio State Patrol, from 2009 to 2011 there were 31,231 crashes caused by distracted driving, of which 74 were fatal and 7,825 caused injuries. If you have been injured by a distracted driver, please talk to a Cincinnati car accident attorney today.

Cellphone Use and Texting

Studies have found that talking on a cellphone, even hands-free, causes impairment equal to a blood alcohol level which is over the legal limit. According to, “Sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent, at 55 mph, of driving the length of an entire football field, blind.”

Other Distractions

Any kind of distraction is dangerous and can cause an accident. Other common distractions include:

  • Eating or drinking
  • Personal grooming
  • Reaching for items in the floorboard or back seat
  • Tending to children
  • Reading a map
  • GPS use
  • Other reading
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting the stereo
  • Looking at scenery
  • Rubbernecking
