Massachusetts Attorney General Accuses Auto Insurance Company of Overcharging Drivers

According to Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, Occidental Fire and Casualty Insurance Company has been charging Boston drivers excessive rates on their car insurance. On Monday, the company was barred from practicing a slew of alleged illegal rating practices.

The AG’s office used its authority under the Consumer Protection Act to stop what it deems to be illegal practices. Coakley says the proposed rates were not justified and violated several Massachusetts statutes.

The company will be able to begin writing policies on April 1 and a hearing is set for April 30.
