A class action was recently certified on behalf of more than two million California drivers. The lawsuit alleges that Geico Corp. overcharged their insureds during the initial months of the COVID-19 lockdowns because the lockdowns forced drivers to change their driving behavior which led to lack of use and a lack of risk by Geico.
Geico has already provided some relief to policyholders in the form of credits, discounts, and renewals. However, the class action lawsuit alleges that it was not enough.
