$54 Million for Minnesota Farmers

Minnesota Farmers were part of a Federal Court class action that produced a settlement against Chubb Insurance of $54 million dollars. Douglas E. Schmidt, the Senior Trial Lawyer at the Schmidt Law Firm has 30 years experience in over 6,000 successful case in personal injury and wrongful death cases. These cases involved car accidents, trucking accidents, construction site accidents, boating accidents, medical malpractice and a wide range of other injury and wrongful death claims.

His experience also extends to cases other that personal injury’s record of bringing justice to Minnesota farmers who have suffered economic losses. Schmidt was successful in bringing justice to a group of Midwest farmers, many from Minnesota, who suffered economic losses in a class-action lawsuit involving the fraudulent sale of “rain insurance”.

Chubb insurance company, which is one of the major insurance companies in the United States, had sold hundreds of policies of “rain insurance” to the farmers. However, Chubb waited an unreasonable period of time before exercising the clause in the insurance application which purported to allow it to reject these applications. Chubb waited to see if that would rain before deciding to accept coverage. This was simply a “win-win” for Chubb, as it played the game.

Schmidt was appointed by the U.S. District Court Judge in Cincinnati, Ohio as one of State Counsel for the farmers. The case resulted in a $54 million settlement in favor of the farmers.

The Schmidt law firm has 30 years of experience, and over 6000 stressful cases in representing Minnesota farmers in cases of personal injury and wrongful death, and a commercial damages.
