Lawyers' group blasts insurance companies

Laramie, Wyo. – The trial lawyers group,the American Association of Justice, has attracted some attention by naming what they call the 10 worst insurance companies.

Some of the companies practice in Wyoming and they say the criticism is unfair.

Cheyenne Attorney Glen Smith says naming insurance companies is not fair because all companies deny legitimate claims. That's one of the major issues the group focused on.

Still, Smith notices that companies change their tune when they go to court, and often pay out claims.

The insurance industry says this is nothing more then a smear campaign by lawyers.
