Class Action Against Allianz and American Airlines
Thank you for choosing Ayala Law PA firm (“Firm”) to represent you in the above referenced matter. It is a pleasure to welcome you as Client.
The lawsuit claims that American Airlines and Allianz misrepresent the nature and substance of their trip insurance when they offer it to consumers. The complaint alleges, among others, that the trip insurance sold is largely related to medical emergencies or catastrophic events (things that rarely occur) while portraying it as a broad, no-fault type of coverage for unexpected events.
1. Terms of Representation

You acknowledge here the Firm has not made any promise regarding outcomes.
