Most Consumers Say Bending the Truth is OK for Home Insurance
Of insureds who recently filed a claim, nine in 10 feel that home insurance companies work to avoid paying claims “at least some of the time.”
When it comes to fibbing to find lower home insurance rates when using price-comparison websites, two in three U.K. consumers say the practice is acceptable, according to a recent survey from LexisNexis Risks Solutions.
Further, around half of the survey respondents who had recently filed a home insurance claim were more likely to consider exaggerating or adjusting a future claim in order to get a higher payout. Those that have recently filed claims and saw a premium increase also are more likely to think it is OK to manipulate information on insurance forms.
