- Complaints from Michigan consumers about Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance Company have increased. Consumer complaints against Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance Company increased 114% between 2007 and 2013, according to data gathered by the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS). This one pains me, because in past years I was invited to Frankenmuth, Michigan to speak to a room of several hundred Frankenmuth claims adjusters. It was part of the Garan Lucow No Fault seminar and I was invited by my old friend Jim Borin (rest in peace, my friend) to give the plaintiff attorney’s perspective on the No Fault law and claims handling. Or, as I used to say, it gave me a chance to tell several hundred claims adjusters in Michigan everything I thought they were doing wrong. I guess based upon how complaints are increasing, these adjusters need to re-read the notes they took from my presentations.
