If you had an auto insurance policy in Washington issued by a HARTFORD entity and received payment to cover damage to your vehicle after March 17, 2010, you may be able to get a payment from this Class Action Settlement.

The Settlement affects the rights of all Washington insureds of Property and Casualty Insurance Company of Hartford, Hartford Casualty Insurance Company, Hartford Underwriters Insurance Company, Trumbull Insurance Company, Twin City Fire Insurance Company, Hartford Insurance Company of the Midwest, Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company, and Sentinel Insurance Company, Limited (referred to above and below collectively as “HARTFORD”) who received payment under their uninsured or underinsured motorist property damage (“UIM PD”) coverage for property damage to their insured automobiles between March 17, 2010 and September 16, 2016, and who meet certain other requirements (set forth in FAQ 4).

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT:
Submit a Claim Form This is the only way to get a payment. You must submit a Claim Form to receive a payment in connection with this Settlement.
Comment (including Objections) Write to the Court about what you think about the Settlement.
Go to the hearing If you would like, you may ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the Settlement. You do not need to do this to receive a payment under the Settlement.
Do nothing You will get no payment if you do not submit a Claim Form, and you will still be bound by the terms of the Settlement.

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in this website.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Payments will be made if the Court approves the Settlement and after appeals, if any, are resolved. This can take time, so please be patient.
