You should always bear in mind that the cheapest insurance is not always the best insurance.

Those companies that offer such cheap rates are often able to do so because of the way that they treat their policyholders when they file a claim.

A company called AM Best bases ranks insurance companies, but does not base the rankings on their profitability, or the amount of money that they spend on advertising. Rather, AM Best ranks insurance companies based on their willingness and ability to pay out claims.

This is the best way for you to figure out which insurance policy is the best for you. Go to their site and see where you insurance company is on their lists.

As always, if you have been injured in a Houston car accident, contact Attorney Steve Lee for a free legal consultation today.

It's good news for Texas all around, as our traffic fatality rate has dropped 4.8%. For whatever reason, it seems that Texans are taking safety a little more seriously these days.

Hurricane Ike has really done a number on Houston, and while the damage wasn't nearly as bad as it was in New Orleans with Hurricane Katrina, we can expect some similar behaviors from the insurance companies.

The link below leads to an article that gives you some very good advice on how to get your claim moving efficiently. A lot of it is common sense, like keeping a record of any and all correspondence with your insurers, and to make sure that you don't rush it when it comes to having your property inspected. Remember, once you accept a settlement from an insurance company, they are usually under no real obligation to come back and take a second look.

Hurricanes are always tricky, in that insurance companies are always looking for an excuse to claim that the damage was caused by water and not wind. But you are not required to just passively sit there and accept whatever decision the insurance company comes to.

This NHTSA poll done by the Gallup organization should not only make you nervous about being on the road, but should also make you rethink your own driving habits.

The percentage of people who routinely engage in unsafe driving behavior (cell phone use, eating while driving, messing with the stereo, talking to passengers) is mind boggling. But you should take a moment to think about how many of these bad habits YOU practice on a daily basis.

Never forget that you are behind the wheel of a vehicle that is moving very fast. It would be a tragedy if you caused someone else to get injured or worse because you got distracted from your primary objective.

If you follow this link:

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=aMf_JWeNUttU&refer=us


you will find a pretty interesting article about how two of the biggest insurance companies in the country lost half of their money in the stock market, which as we all know, just took a pretty serious plunge.

The end result is that they want a piece of that eight hundred billion that the government is giving to the financial corporations to keep them afloat.

We have to wonder why insurance companies never seem to make public thier losses in the stock market, which can evaporate half of their wealth, yet feel the need to shout to the high heavens over lawsuits, which don't account for the loss of any of their wealth at all.

Just something to consider.
