One-half of the claimants who suffered total losses cited
that the settlements they received weren’t enough to replace their totaled
vehicles with a similar make/model vehicle.

"Ongoing communication and managing expectations are
key throughout the entire claims process, as total loss claims take 18.2 days,
on average, for claimants to receive payment, compared with just 12.5 days for
the return of a repaired vehicle," said Jeremy Bowler, senior director of
the insurance practice at J.D. Power and Associates.

Auto-Owners Insurance ranked highest in overall
satisfaction for the fourth consecutive year. State Farm finished second, with
Amica Mutual at third. The entire rankings are as
