What is this lawsuit about?
There is a Proposed Settlement of a class action lawsuit concerning alleged violation of Montana law by defendants Allstate Fire & Casualty Insurance Company, Allstate Indemnity Company, Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Company, and Allstate Insurance Company, individually and on behalf of all affiliated entities (collectively, “Allstate,” as defined in the Settlement Agreement). The Named Plaintiffs were involved in an automobile accident while insured under an automobile policy issued by a Allstate entity. The Named Plaintiffs allege their Allstate entity insurer subrogated from the at-fault driver before the Named Plaintiffs were made whole for their property damages or bodily injury damages. The Named Plaintiffs allege their Allstate entity insurer had no legal right to subrogation, and failed to conduct a reasonable investigation to determine whether the Named Plaintiffs were or would be made whole from payments received from the at-fault driver or their insurer. The Named Plaintiffs allege, generally, that Allstate engaged in improper subrogation in Montana by subrogating before conducting a proper made whole analysis.

All Persons (and their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns), as of September 28, 2018, (a) who were insured under an auto insurance policy issued by Allstate in Montana; (b) with respect to whom Allstate recovered subrogation on a Montana automobile insurance claim after October 21, 2008.
