Class Action Lawsuit Settlement: Pak v Farmers Insurance

Man Pak and Nancy Pak (Plaintiffs) alleged that Farmers Insurance Exchange and Farmers Insurance Affiliates failed to pay to their insureds the amounts required under their respective policies of automobile insurance for total loss claims. According to the Plaintiffs, the Farmers Insurance based their total loss valuations of their insureds' vehicles, in whole or in part, on valuation reports prepared by CCC, which the Lawsuit alleges were "lower than the actual retail fair market value."

Was your auto insured with Farmers Insurance between 1996-2006?

The settlement will provide cash payments to people who were insured by Farmers, had an accident, and had insurance claims adjusted based on certain categories of these parts, known as “non-OEM crash parts,” between June 15, 1996 and November 1, 2006. “Non-OEM crash parts” are generally the sheet metal exterior of your car or truck, such as hoods and fenders, that were not made by, or for, the vehicle’s original maker. That is, they are parts that were not made by or for companies like Ford, GM or Toyota.
