Minnesota Court Awards $157,851 to Glass Company for Underpaid/Unpaid Claims from Progressive

GlassBYTES has reported that the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld a decision that gave Rapid Glass, an automotive glass repair and replacement company, $157,851.46 for 580 underpaid and unpaid claims from Progressive. The court ruled that the glass company’s charges were fair, reasonable and competitive.

Rick Rosar, president of Rapid Glass, told GlassBYTES, “The windshield has become an integral part of the vehicle’s safety system. It is not a place to cut corners when a windshield needs to be replaced…”

The court said the dispute was whether Progressive satisfied the contract by paying “the amount necessary to repair damaged property to its pre-loss condition.”

“[Progressive] was not required to interpret the term ‘necessary’ because the contract provided the definition…," the court wrote in its decision. "Under the terms of the contract, ‘necessary’ means ‘a competitive price that is fair and reasonable within the local industry at large.’”
