An insurance company dropped off a $21,000 settlement in buckets full of coins to a 73-year-old man from East L.A. who could couldn’t lift them because he’s suffering from a hernia.
Andres Carrasco filed a lawsuit against Adrianaâ€™s Insurance Service Inc., claiming that one of their employees physically assaulted him in 2012, according to NBC Los Angeles. And when the insurance company agreed in June to a settlement, they paid him off with a check, but also with more than $21,000 worth of loose change. According to Carrasco’s attorney, Antonio Gallo, eight Adriana folks came by his office in a van and dropped off five-gallon containers full of coins.
Gallo said that his client recently had a hernia operation and would in no way have been able to carry those buckets.
“I am disappointed by the way Adriana’s treats their customers and the elderly,â€ť Carrasco said in a statement. “We might be poor, but we are people too.”
