Amica Mutual Insurance Company and Amica Property and Casualty Insurance companies are settling a class action about its uninsured or underinsured motorist property damage (UMPD) payouts. When automobiles are in an accident that damages their bodies or structural systems, they cannot always be repaired to the condition they were in before the accident, causing them to suffer diminished value.
