    Uhh, Panamadesnews, so you think the taxpayers should be reimbursing insurance companies?

    How about if we taxpayers sue the insurance companies for negligence in insuring residences adjacent to a military training area? Or failing to adequately foresee the risks and not charging rates to cover possible losses?

    Farmers and State Farm are on my list of badly run companies now.

    My premiums always seem to go up in
    auto, medical etc. Basically from
    lawsuits from greedy individuals.
    Medical always go up because of
    greedy doctors, lawyers, and pharmaceutical
    especially. They seem that they have
    to recover losses that group insurances
    are to share the cost for losses.

    Think, people. These insurance companies want to recover their losses in order to keep our premiums as low as possible. At least one of the two companies is a mutual company, meaning they sell no stock - the policyholders are the owners of the company, which is managed by the officers of the company. Why shouldn't they recover their losses just as the people did who were invited to make claims against the military.

    Usually when a lawsuit occurs, it is because the defendant refuses to pay what the plaintiff claims the defendant owes. Pleas see the attached, from the article:

    "The Guard accepted responsibility for the fire and within days set up a claims center for residents whose homes or property were damaged."

    We ought to be content that these companies care enough to try to recoup their losses to save their policyholders premium dollars

    Thank you Deseret News for reporting about two insurance companies with whom, now, I will never do business. As SundanceKid27, these insurance companies are a joke. Suing an organization that protects you is ... I can't even think of a description...

    These insurance companies are a joke. Suing the organization that keeps you safe and gives you your freedoms?

    I would love to see a commercial made about this. Don't think I will be tempted to use these companies.
