Maryland Casualty Company is the topic for this Maryland Casualty auto insurance review. The company was originally established in 1898 to provide fire, property, and casualty insurance in the Baltimore region.

Maryland Casualty was previously owned by American General Corp. until 1989 when they sold the company to Swiss insurance giant Zürich International. Zürich is one of the largest casualty insurers in the world.

In North America, they own five major insurance companies and all their subsidiaries.

Maryland Casualty Insurance Locations and Agents

Unfortunately, Maryland Casualty does not maintain its own website. Therefore, finding out any direct information about what they offer is difficult. It doesn’t appear that they provide individual auto insurance policies of any kind, although that can’t be said for sure.

As a property and casualty insurer, they do cover things like the following:

If you need more specific information about what Maryland Casualty offers, feel free to contact them directly.

It is unknown whether or not Maryland Casualty maintains any other offices beyond their headquarters. A brief Internet search listed other possible locations, but it’s not clear if these other locations are directly connected or perhaps just agencies using the same name.

It is possible that some of Maryland Casualty subsidiaries do maintain other offices around the country whose business records list their parent company.

As far as insurance agents are concerned, it is assumed that Maryland Casualty utilizes local agents to sell and service policies. This is probably a reasonable assumption due to the fact that Zürich International utilizes local brokers and agents heavily.

You could find a local Maryland Casualty agent by contacting their headquarters and inquiring. You might also find the information you’re looking for by consulting your local phone book.

Maryland Casualty Insurance Reviews

Individual customer reviews for this company are virtually nonexistent. If they don’t sell standard auto insurance, that would be one reason for it.

Independent insurance review sites tend to solicit opinions mainly about auto insurance, choosing to leave other fire and casualty products alone.

However, we still have a few sources of reviews including the Better Business Bureau and financial ratings services companies such as A.M. Best.

Maryland Casualty is not a member of their state’s BBB, even though that agency has given them an A+ rating.

In terms of financial stability, the company has high ratings for both current position and future outlook. It must be assumed that one of the factors regarding the high ratings has to do with the financial stability of Maryland Casualty’s parent company.

As one of the world’s largest insurance companies, Zürich International provides excellent financial stability and future outlook for all its subsidiaries.

Maryland Casualty Insurance Customer Service

One of the downsides to this company is a large number of lawsuits filed against it by dissatisfied customers. A cursory Internet search lists only one lawsuit against Maryland Casualty in the last few years.

However, if you dig a little deeper there are many more lawsuits this company has been engaged in.

A common thread in all the litigation is a failure by this company to abide by his contractual obligations.

Many of the lawsuits this reviewer uncovered are well in the past, such as one dating back to 1954. But the most recent round of litigation occurred in early 2011. Whether or not the amount of litigation Maryland Casualty is involved in is normal requires further investigation.

Maryland Casualty Insurance Careers

The Zürich International website does have a careers section devoted to helping interested candidates apply for positions with them. However, there is nothing directly relating to Maryland Casualty or any other subsidiary for that matter.

All job applications in North America are handled by the North American office. The Zürich website provides some information about current job openings and how resumes can be submitted.
