American International Group Inc. et al. v. ACE INA Holdings Inc. et al

The Situation

American International Group (AIG) was accused of underreporting its workers compensation insurance premiums, which meant, if true, that it did not provide as much insurance coverage in the higher risk "residual" market as it should have. AIG also countersued, making similar accusations against certain plaintiffs in the case.

NERA's Role

Sampling insurance contract files was required of all defendants, both of the original claim and the counterclaim. Working on behalf of AIG, NERA statisticians developed sampling plans for the counterclaim defendants and evaluated the sampling plans developed by plaintiffs' experts for the AIG files.


The Result

All claims in the case were ultimately settled, and the settlement was upheld upon appeal by certain of the plaintiffs.
