Auto insurance customers are more satisfied with the claim handling experience than ever before, according to the results of the J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Auto Claims Satisfaction Study™.
“The investments made by insurers in claim digitization and internal process improvements are resulting in shorter cycle times and an improved overall claim experience,” David Pieffer, J.D. Power’s vice president of Property & Casualty Insurance Intelligence, said in a press release. “The investment is paying off.”
The study is based on responses from more than 11,000 auto insurance customers who settled a claim within the past six months. Data was collected between November 2018 and September 2019. Insureds were asked to evaluate their experience with first notice of loss, claim servicing, the estimation process, the repair process, their rental experience, and the settlement.

There was, however, one area where carriers continue to struggle, according to this research.
“There is still some room for improvement,” Pieffer said, “in the area of helping claimants feel more at ease during the first notice of loss.”
