United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
Case No. 2:19-cv-00977-GJP
If You Had a Property Insurance Claim with Travelers that Included Rot Damage and Travelers Denied Coverage for the Rot Damage, You May Be Entitled to Benefits from a Class Action Settlement.
A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (the “Court”). The lawsuit alleges that Travelers improperly applied a long-term seepage/leakage exclusion in certain of its insurance policies to claimed Rot Damage, and that Travelers should have paid for certain claimed Rot Damage under a Rot Remediation Coverage. (Capitalized terms used on this website are defined in Paragraphs 1 through 37 of the Settlement Agreement.) Travelers denies that it did anything wrong, but has agreed to a proposed settlement.
The proposed settlement will provide monetary benefits to eligible persons who made insurance claims with Travelers for Structural Damage to an Insured Structure where the insurance claim falls within the Settlement Class Period, the Policy included Rot Remediation Coverage, and the Rot Damage portion of the claim was denied by Travelers.
These rights and options, and the deadlines to exercise them, are explained on this website.
