Coccaro, owner of North State Custom Auto in West Chester County, New York,
triumphed when a New York Supreme Court judge tossed out Progressive's case
The story has important implications for insurers, bodyshops and consumers
who trust their insurer to choose a bodyshop that will do safe,
high-quality repairs -- something that doesn't always happen, Coccaro says.
The victory cost Coccaro $400,000 in legal fees over three years. His suit
against Progressive is pending.
This is the latest of "Topics in Ten," Scene Genesis' monthly podcast that
brings opinions and ideas to the collision-repair industry.
