Federal Lawsuit Says Leif's Auto Collision Employees Menaced Geico Claims Adjusters And One Talked

Federal Lawsuit Says Leif’s Auto Collision Employees Menaced Geico Claims Adjusters—And One Talked About “Killing People”

One of the nation's largest car insurance companies wants to sever all ties with Tigard-based repair chain Leif's Auto Collision Centers—because it says Leif's employees physically threatened its claims adjusters.

Geico Auto Insurance sued Leif's and owner Leif Hansen on Jan. 10 in the U.S. District Court for Oregon, seeking payment for professional damages as well as the right to no longer do with business with them.

Oregon insurance law requires that an insurer not restrict a client's choice of which repair shop fixes their vehicle. But in the lawsuit, first reported Wednesday by The Oregonian, Geico says its request is justified under Oregon workplace safety laws, claiming that Leif's employees and Hansen himself regularly harass and physically threaten the Geico claims adjusters sent to negotiate the cost of repairs.

In a section outlining Leif's "abusive and intimidating conduct", Geico claims Hansen and/or other Leif's employees frequently say to adjusters that "they know how to 'find people.'"
