Class Action Status Denied in Ky. Lawsuit Against Allstate

A lawsuit which was filed by a central Kentucky woman, alleges Allstate Insurance Co. forces claimants to file costly and time-consuming litigation to get a fair offer for damage claims has been dismissed class action status.

Fayette Circuit Judge Thomas Clark ruled last week that the circumstances of Geneva Hager’s case were too unique for her to represent a class of plaintiffs.

The insurance company paid Hager $25,000, the policy limit for the truck’s driver, Thomas J. Lapointe Jr., more than five years ago. But Hager’s attorneys argue it was only offered days after Fayette Circuit Court Judge Thomas Clark set a trial date over her claim.
