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.

The Metropolitan Life Insurance Tower

This California class action alleges that Metropolitan Life Insurance Company sold Short-Term Disability (STD) policies whose benefits were “false and illusory” because of the conditions in the policies. The complaint claims the policies provided “no increased value” over California’s State Disability Insurance (SDI) program, which residents of the state already participate in through mandatory payroll deductions.

St. Vincent Infirmary Building

When Nicholas Dorado was injured in an auto accident, he discovered that the facility that treated him did not immediately submit the bills to his insurance company but looked for higher payments than those the insurance company was willing to make. This class action sues St. Vincent Community Health Services, Inc., St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center, Catholic Health Initiatives Physician Services, LLC, and their insurer First Initiatives Insurance, Ltd. for changing

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. The complaint alleged that these payments were prohibited by Ohio law and that Farmers and Mid-Century should not have accepted them.

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. 

Car Accident

How does an insurance company determine the actual cash value (ACV) when a vehicle is totaled in an accident? The complaint for this class action alleges that Trumbull Insurance Company uses improper methods to determine the ACV of vehicles, resulting in underpayments to its insureds.

Sometimes, when a property is damaged, its value is diminished, even after repairs are performed. The complaint for this class action alleges that Integon National Insurance Company does not check properties or pay insureds for this diminution in value, against both the laws of Georgia and its own insurance policies. 

ACCC Eagle Logo

ACCC Insurance Company issues policies in the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. All of these states require that auto policies provide uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, but the complaint claims that ACCC’s policies do not.

Geico Gecko

When Danielle Russell was injured in an accident, she was treated by a chiropractic business called Randy Rosenberg, DC, PA. Afterwards, Geico did not pay the entire amount of her bills, even though they were lower than her coverage limits. The dispute in this class action revolves around how much Geico General Insurance Company pays for medical bills under personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.
