The Allstate car insurance policyholders in Montana are eligible for compensation under $2.6 million class action settlement. There are several Allstate entities that have agreed to settle a class action lawsuit against them.
This lawsuit has made an allegation that the insurance company recovered the subrogation (it is the legal right held by the insurance companies to pursue a third party that caused an insurance loss) wrongly from the policyholders; even when they had no legal rights to do so. But the plaintiffs in All-State car insurance class action settlement said that Montana Allstate did not have any right to subrogate.
Moreover, they have also failed to do an investigation to determine, whether the policyholder’s losses should be recouped or not. But Allstate admits no wrongdoing and has agreed to pay $2, 673,500 to a settlement fund. According to the settlement, the eligible class members can file a claim and recover 30% of the amount that subrogated to an individual’s claim.
Moreover, the class counsel will also receive $668,375 of funds as compensation for the attorney fee. However, the deduction for litigation, class representative, and class administration costs will be deduced from the settlement amount.
The Class Members have until 30, 2019 to file a claim.
