The LM General Car Insurance review is a review of Liberty Mutual. LM General is another name for Liberty Mutual’s general insurance department.

Liberty Mutual began in 1912 in Massachusetts as The Massachusetts Employee’s Insurance Association.

The MEIA was founded because the Massachusetts government had passed a law in 1911 requiring all employers to have workers compensation insurance to protect their employees.

In 1917, the name was changed to Liberty Mutual and the company began writing insurance for cars and public liability.
