Shernoff Bidart Echeverria Bentley LLP Pursues Insurance Bad Faith Suit Against Progressive Direct Insurance Company

Attorneys Howard S. Shernoff and Samuel L. Bruchey of Shernoff Bidart Echeverria Bentley LLP are set to augment the insurance bad faith lawsuit against Progressive Direct Insurance Company which they recently filed in LA Superior Court. The suit alleges that Progressive, which uses marketing slogans such as "Now thats progressive" and "Find your perfect auto policy," abuses its customers and uses invasive tactics when the company is faced with paying claims. In the complaint (Jeffrey Blackman, et al v. Progressive Direct Insurance Company), Progressive Insurance is charged with using "systematic bad faith claims-handling practices and delays and denies valid automobile and motorcycle theft and vandalism claims as a calculated component of its corporate culture. The lawsuit accuses Progressive Insurance of the following behavior: Targeting vulnerable claimants, especially those of minority ethnicities who do not speak English as a first language, for protracted, Inquisition-style claims investigations that invariably end in unwarranted denial. Requesting such private and/or irrelevant information as federal income tax returns, W-2 forms, court records arising from all divorces, partnership agreements, bank statements, phone bills, cable bills and original bank deposit books.
