Insurance payout in coins


Only in America could this happen. An elderly American man was recently paid part of his settlement from a California based insurance company with $21,000 in loose change.

The man, Andres Carrasco, had sued Adriana's Insurance company, claiming one of the company's insurance agents had assaulted him.

The company agreed to settle and the payment was delivered to Mr Carrasco's lawyer's office in the form of a cheque and several buckets containing $21,000 worth of coins.

This is a great example of really bad service from an insurance company.

The Tradesure team would like to assure you that you will never receive a tradies insurance settlement from us in buckets, coins or otherwise. This story is not all bad news though, everyone can do with a few extra buckets. See, there's always a bright side.
