Insurance company pays $21,000 settlement with buckets of loose change An insurance company begrudgingly paid a $21,000 (£12,000) court settlement by dropping it off in buckets full of loose change. Adriana's Insurance Services, based in Rancho Cucamonga, California, settled a dispute with Andres Carrasco in June. The 76-year-old Los Angeles claims an Adriana employee assaulted him during an argument over why the company had cancelled his car insurance. He was expecting a cheque in the post, but instead received thousands of quarters, nickels and dimes. The buckets were dropped off at his lawyer Antonio Gallo’s office this week, a day after Mr Gallo had refused to accept the delivery. Andres Carrasco was expecting a cheque Photo: AP "There's maybe 17 buckets of coins," the attorney explained. "They probably (each) weigh anywhere between 70 to 100 pounds. I'm assuming, because I can't lift them. “It's insulting to my client. He's 76 years old; he just had a hernia operation,” he added. "He feels that he wasn't treated as a human being." Mr Carrasco said he was “disappointed” about the way he has been treated. His lawyer has asked the insurance company to remove the coins and issue a cheque for the full settlement amount.

Horrible PR for the insurance company.
