Case No. 6:17-CV-891-PGB-LRH
IMPORTANT CLASS ACTION NOTICE
A court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer. You are not being sued.
PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY
You may be a member of a class action (a “Class Member”) against Government Employees Insurance Company, GEICO General Insurance Company, and GEICO Indemnity Company (together “GEICO Defendants”) if:
If you submitted a covered total loss claim against a GEICO Defendant in the above stated periods and your total loss vehicle was a leased vehicle, you are not part of the Class. If your total loss claim payment included title transfer and license plate transfer fees, you may not be part of the class.
In other words, you may be a member of the Class if you had a Florida Personal Automobile Policy insured by GEICO Defendants that covered an owned (i.e., not leased) vehicle, and you submitted a physical damage claim to one of the GEICO Defendants with respect to your non-leased vehicle, and your vehicle was determined to be a total loss and one of the GEICO Defendants settled the claim as a total loss.
IF YOU ARE A CLASS MEMBER, THIS LEGAL PROCEEDING MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.
