- If you had an insurance policy with New Mexico Safeco from 2004 to 2014, you could be eligible for financial compensation

- If you’re making a claim in this lawsuit against New Mexico Safeco, your documents must be submitted by March 6, 2016
If you were insured under a New Mexico Safeco Policy from May 20, 2004 to November 1, 2014, and your policy did not have Equal Limits UM/UIM coverage, you could be in line for a surprise payment thanks to a class action lawsuit! This lawsuit alleges that Safeco’s selection forms were invalid, and that consumers didn’t have the chance to choose uninsured motorist coverage. In short, if you’re a member of this settlement, you will receive a payment that will equal what your insurance would have covered (if you had the opportunity). It will be like your Safeco insurance had uninsured motorist coverage all along.
If a motorist wasn’t able to choose that coverage, and ended up having an accident, the purpose of this lawsuit is to amend those claims and provide financial compensation. The amount of your settlement depends on several factors, including how much damage was done to your vehicle, and how much bodily harm you suffered. Once you have submitted your information to the lawyers, you will have an answer within 120 days.
If approved, you should receive your settlement check from Safeco 180 days after your claim is filed, or 180 days after the final settlement date, whichever one of those dates comes last. If approved, you will not need to do any calculating to figure out how much you’re owed. The court will make sure insurance retroactive.
