When an insurance company pays the replacement cost of a vehicle that is a total loss, should that amount include sales tax and title/tag transfer fees? The complaint for this class action says yes, and it alleges that Elephant Insurance Company owes these amounts to its insureds who have had total losses.

On October 24, 2015, Sean McGinnis was stopped at a red light when his vehicle was hit head-on by another. He was extensively and permanently injured in the accident. At issue in this class action is “stacked” uninsured or underinsured (UIM) motorist coverage. The complaint alleges that MetLife Auto & Home improperly denied McGinnis the stacked coverage his parents had chosen and paid for.

This class action is another case where a company has classified a worker as an independent contractor rather than an employee. However, in this case plaintiffs Jason Sheldon and Steven Hunsberger had to invest a significant amount of money. The plaintiffs were led to believe that they were starting their own businesses, but the complaint alleges that State Farm controlled nearly everything and provided a great deal of misinformation.

The complaint for this class action alleges that New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation hiked the premium on its universal life policies by an excessive rate. It did this, the complaint says, using an illegal policy form to support its moves, and forced many people to allow their policies to lapse, leaving them with nothing for all the years they’d paid in.

Motorcycle After Accident

Francis J. Butta was severely and permanently injured in an accident when he was riding his motorcycle. Since the driver of the car that hit him did not have sufficient coverage to compensate him for his injuries, he attempted to obtain stacked coverage from his parents’ car insurance policy. However, the insurer, Geico Casualty Company, refused his claim. The complaint claims breach of contract.

Breastfeeding Baby

This settlement resolves a class action against CareFirst, Inc., Group Hospitalization and Medical Services, Inc., CareFirst of Maryland, Inc., and CareFirst BlueChoice, Inc.

Magnifying Glass on Words "Life Insurance"

This class action concerns Wilco Life Insurance Company policies that come with a guaranteed interest rate. The complaint claims that the company has unlawfully increased its “cost of insurance” charges to customers to cover the interest.

Tail of JetBlue Plane

When you make a reservation with an airline and buy trip insurance on the same website, do you assume that the trip insurance goes entirely to a third party insurer? The complaint for this class action says that when you buy trip insurance at the website for JetBlue Airways Corporation, the cost of the insurance is increased by a kickback that goes straight back to JetBlue.
