Totaled Vehicle After Accident

This is one of a number of class actions brought recently against insurance companies for their methods of figuring the actual cash value (ACV) of a vehicle when it is totaled in an accident. The complaint alleges that, in the event of a total loss, State Automobile Mutual Insurance Company and its subsidiary, Meridian Security Insurance Co., make false adjustments to vehicle prices so they can pay their customers less than they should be getting.

The complaint for this class action alleges that Shelter Insurance Company does not use a valid method for determining the actual cash value (ACV) of a totaled vehicle, relying instead on something called a CCC One Market Valuation Report. 

Front End of Car After Crash

The complaint for this class action alleges that Progressive Northwestern Insurance Company violates Arkansas law in using a Mitchell Valuation Report to determine the actual cash value (ACV) of total-loss vehicles.

The Cupped "Good Hands" of Allstate

What happens when you have PIP (personal injury protection) coverage but the insurance company refuses to pay adequate rates to your medical providers for treatment? The complaint alleges that Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Company and Allstate Insurance Company have refused to pay providers outside of Pennsylvania the “usual and customary” rates for treatment provided to Pennsylvania insureds with PIP coverage. 

USAA Casualty Insuance Company Name and American Flag

When a vehicle is totaled, which of the costs to replace the vehicle should the insurance payout cover? The complaint for this class action alleges that USAA Casualty Insurance Company underpaid customers because it did not include state and local title transfer and vehicle registration fees, which are mandatory with new vehicles.

Four defendants—Wells Fargo Bank, NA, Wells Fargo & Co, National General Holdings Corp., and National General Insurance Company—have decided to pay a little less than $400 million to settle a class action about their auto loans.

Farmers Insurance of Columbus, Inc. and Mid-Century Insurance Company are settling a class action about the payment of uninsured/under-insured motorist on more than one car in a household.

Geico Mascot Gecko

A number of persons have filed class actions against auto insurance companies in the past year or so on the subject of the actual cash value (ACV) of totaled vehicles. This is another such lawsuit, with the complaint alleging that Geico General Insurance Company does not include sales tax in its calculation of a vehicle’s ACV.

Totaled Vehicle Sitting Across Road

When an insurance company must pay the actual cash value (ACV) of a total-loss vehicle, what should that include? The complaint for this class action alleges that Imperial Fire and Casualty Insurance Company does not include amounts for sales tax or title and registration fees in calculating ACV. Its refusal to pay these amounts, the complaint says, is a breach of contract.
