JANETTE L. FERGUSON SECURES TRIAL VICTORY

Denver, Colorado (August 9, 2017) - On July 28, 2017, Janette L. Ferguson, of Lewis Bess Williams & Weese P.C., won a significant victory on behalf of Farmers Insurance Exchange and Mid-Century Insurance Company in a class action lawsuit that has been pending for 14 years. The case began in 2003 as a single class action against all major Colorado auto insurance carriers. The Plaintiffs alleged that that they were fraudulently induced into purchasing unnecessary uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage because the insurance companies did not inform them of a 2001 Colorado Supreme Court case that broadened the scope of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. In 2006, the single class action was separated into numerous class actions against the different insurance carriers. The proposed class in the Farmers/Mid-Century action included over 250,000 Colorado residents and involved over $65 million in potential damages.
