    Default Bankrupted by Gallagher Bassett

    Two years ago I was earning $85,000.00 a year as an auto tech. From no fault of my own I slipped and fell injuring my back. Since that time I have spent 90% of my time trying to get money out of Gallagher Bassett, My employers carrier. Through taking advantage of every loophole in Connecticuts miserably insurance company favored comp laws, they have managed to delay payment at every opportunity and when forced to pay would only pay the minimum they could get away with. In the meantime I have exhausted my savings and had my credit score go from 720 to 530. At this point bankruptcy is my only option and will probably end up homeless anyway.
    If anyone else has similar stories concerning Gallagher Bassett and Connecticuts biased laws, Please post and let your complaints be heard. Maybe we can make a difference.

    I am also in CT and have been going through the same thing, but with ACE USA. Do you have an Attorney? That is your best bet, they will get you the comp. that is owed. I went 6 months with no pay when the Employer, Ace, and their attorney KNEW I was injured at work. But thats how they play their "starve you out" games. Hang in there and don't let them bring you down. FIGHT THEM to all he$$'s end. I also wrote letters to Politicians which went into the trash bin, since they don't care one iotta on what is happening here in CT with the tax paying citizens.

    GET AN ATTORNEY... You will need one, or you will be jacked around the whole crappy process of W/C.

    I am so sorry to hear about your stories - Here is a link that although it wont help you - maybe it will help someone else out. You can add the insurance company to this list and get their name out their as being one of the bad/or good ones.

    I've also included some other links - Hopefully something here might be able to keep you out of bankruptcy court OR at least keep you in your home.

    We are dealing with GB as a third party administrator in California. They are now denying the psyche meds that have prevented suicide so far. Hmmm, I wonder what they are hoping for.

    Sorry, I&#39;m paying for them myself, thanks. They can pay me later with penalties.

    Gallagher Bassett is a subsiduary of the Arthur J. Gallagher Companies&#40;AJGCO&#41;. AGJCO is the 4th largest broker in the world. GB is a third party adminstrator and is one of the largest in the country. Zurich is a carrier who may place business with both companies.
