Brickstreet Class Action Pursued By West Virginia Manufacturer
This article on Brickstreet appeared in many newspapers and Workers Comp publications last week.
My Apologies – due to traveling and being in an area with sketchy WiFi and very slow dial-up service, the blogs have not been tended to for about 10 days. Our main website is at https://cutcompcosts.com/
Brickstreet has a class action suit filed against them – a manufacturer is asking for class action status. The only Workers Comp carrier since 1/1/06 in West Virginia has been Brickstreet. It seems that the carrier has allegedly been charging an agent’s fee on all of their Workers Compensation policies even though they have not had any agents providing their services. If this is the case, this is a very serious allegation.Add Gallery

We have found additional errors in the Workers Comp policies on over 2/3 of the ones we have examined for WV employers. One of Brickstreet’s underwriters was quoted as saying there are errors on over 80% of their policies. You owe it to your company to have your policies reviewed by an expert to make sure you were charged properly.
Update – please note that due to the age of this article we do not have the West Virginia employers notice on our homepage. It was there for many years. When the website was updated in 2014, the link was removed as, in our opinion, it no longer applied to the situation.
The agent or non-agent fee situation has been resolved in the recent past. If you have any questions on this situation, please free to to contact us.
