I recently came across a new class action filing in Albert v. Erie Insurance Exchange, in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. (I don’t have a link to the complaint online, but e-mail me if you would like a copy.) The complaint focuses on a provision in auto policies that provides for reimbursement of up to $100 per day for loss of earnings where an insured is required to take time off from work to assist in the defense of a claim or suit (such as attending a deposition or trial, or preparing for such testimony). The allegations are that the insurer does not make insureds aware of this provision (although it is in the policy, which insureds can read) and the insurer does not make a proactive effort to find out if insureds are incurring lost wages so that reimbursement can be made. I’m not sure this has much legs given the fact that insureds generally are expected to read their policies, but I thought I would advise readers of this new filing since I have not seen other filings on this issue.
