Four More Massachusetts Insurers Settle over Driving Records

May 6, 2010

Nearly 10,000 Massachusetts drivers’ records will be corrected after four insurers reached settlements with the state over their failure to do so.

Attorney General Martha Coakley’s Office reached settlements with Arbella Mutual Insurance Co., Norfolk & Dedham Mutual Fire Insurance Co., United Services Automobile Association (USAA) and Electric Insurance Co.

By statute, insurers in the state are required to correct at-fault accident findings that are submitted to a statewide database. Coakley’s office said the companies failed to correct the records of drivers who were later determined by a state board to be not at-fault in an accident.

Coakley’s office reached similar settlements with six other auto insurance companies earlier this year.

The companies have agreed to comply with the statutes, correct the records, pay back drivers for overcharged premiums and pay $100,000 to the state.
