A report by a Lexis/Nexis company shows that there has been a major increase in the numbers of filed federal insurance cases in the last several years. The report also confirmed that federal courts are far more likely to rule in favor of insurers than claimants. The two areas that had the biggest jump were automobile claims and homeowner claims. Automobile claims rose by thirty nine percent, uninsured/underinsured motorist claims rose by fifty percent, and homeowner’s claims rose by eighty percent. While claims are going up, insurers tend to be satisfied due to the insurer friendly outcomes in federal courts.
