In response to mandatory shelter-in-place guidelines and the closure of non-essential businesses and the inevitable drop in cars on the road, several large personal auto insurance companies began to offer rebates to its insureds. Many of these companies are now facing suits for alleged “woefully inadequate” COVID-19 auto insurance discounts and instead, unfairly profited from high rates.

Cases have been filed in Illinois against Allstate, Geico, Progressive, Travelers and others.
