Insurance company Progressive felt the wrath of the Internet this week after the brother of a policyholder who died in a car crash posted a startling missive about how the family's claim was handled. Progressive has now reached a financial settlement with the family.
Matt Fisher detailed his family's nightmare in a Tumblr post on Monday with a shocking title: "My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court."
Three days later, Progressive said it reached a settlement with the Fishers.
My old blog buddy Willan Sulik has posted that Tumblr post on Facebook yesteday, prompting me to note-
Interestingly, Progressive's owners live up to its name in donations to liberal causes; it wants to care for people in general with other people's taxes, but not for their own clients with their own money if they can help it.
I guess the best answer here is "Don't go with the Flo"
The family here got their money after a fashion, but you shouldn't have to make an on-line stink to get justice. That's Regressive.
