Case Studies

New Jersey Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses

New Jersey Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses

Save Choices for New Jersey Drivers (SCNJD), an ad-hoc coalition of insurers, trade and business associations asked Pinnacle to determine how proposed legislation would affect drivers.

The New Jersey Auto Cost Reduction Act eliminated the judicial requirement that permanent injuries that do not meet the other eligibility criteria for tort claims in no fault cases must have a “serious impact” on the claimant’s life. Pinnacle evaluated the affect of eliminating this requirement and determined the law would “significantly increase “losses eligible for tort recovery. Hence, Bodily Injury (BI) Liability and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM) costs and premiums would increase for drivers selecting the verbal threshold.

On June 14, 2005, two years after Pinnacle conducted its analysis, the New Jersey Supreme Court concluded does not imply a "serious impact" requirement for those seeking damages for non-economic losses (Octavio Serrano v. Jacqueline Serrano, et al. (A-99-03) and DiProspero v. Penn, et al., (A-66-03). As a result, injured claimants may seek recompense from the at-fault party for losses such as pain and suffering. SCNJD hired Pinnacle again to update the analysis based upon the later Insurance Research Council (IRC) data, which became available subsequent to the release of its 2003 report. 

Rate Indications / Filings

Rate Indications / Filings

A regional carrier came to Pinnacle wanting to implement an insurance score program along with rate indications for home, auto and farm. Pinnacle developed rate indications for each line, and developed an underwriting scorecard rating approach using insurance score as a critical component. The combination of implementing appropriate rates and the new rating plan enabled this company to turn their business around, become profitable and rebuild their surplus position.

Underwriting & Tiering Analysis

Underwriting & Tiering Analysis

A single state auto insurance writer hired Pinnacle to address its current rating and tiering program. We removed unnecessary underwriting restrictions and more adequately priced risk classes, which allowed the insurer to experience significant, profitable growth.

When we began, the company’s existing tiering design was only based on a few factors, including ones that significantly overlapped with the rating plan. When combined with the underwriting rules, the design was punitive and limited writable business. Through predictive modeling, we helped design a new tiering structure and applied an underwriting scoring approach to eliminate rating plan overlap and remove the overly punitive parts of the plan.
