Belleview, FL asked in Insurance Bad Faith for Florida

Q: How do i get geico to remove a duplicate claim they have.

On 7/25/2020 i was in one car accident. Somehow a duplicate claim was made for same accident. Geico refused in writing to remove duplicate claim (they even state in writing that it is a duplicate claim) because they say once in the system it can not be removed. It now shows on my record that i had 2 accidents on the same day which is not the case. My insurance has skyrocketed of course. How do i force geico to remove the duplicate claim from my record.

A: When you apply for insurance, attach a copy of the admission from GEICO that it is a duplicate claim and that it "can not be removed" from the system.

A: I agree with Mr. Thorgaard, but another thing you can do is to contact the Fla. Office of Insurance Regulation - see, or you can hire an attorney to threaten GEICO with a lawsuit for an injunction, then file a lawsuit if necessary.
