Progressive Security Insurance Company (“Progressive Security”) was sued by certain individuals (“Plaintiffs”) who allege that a class of individuals were injured because Progressive Security undervalued their total-loss vehicles by use of the Mitchell Work Center Total Loss (WCTL) valuation system. Progressive Security denies Plaintiffs’ allegations and any wrongdoing.

A settlement has been reached with Progressive Security, which has agreed to pay $40 million into a Settlement Fund. This settlement will pay money to allegedly impacted individuals.

Generally, you are included in the settlement if you were a Louisiana Progressive Security insured who received payment for a total loss motor vehicle(s) located in the State of Louisiana, under the terms of a collision automobile insurance policy with Progressive Security Insurance Company, utilizing the Mitchell Work Center Total Loss (WCTL) system, from July 1, 2010 to June 24, 2019.

The settlement will provide payments to allegedly impacted individuals.

The Court has appointed a Special Master to allocate the settlement funds according to data contained in claims data produced by Progressive Security.
