Liberty Mutual Exposed in NYC Protest Over Cheating Policyholders and Accident Victims

Noted Labor and Human Rights Advocate Ray Rogers Has Liberty Mutual in His Sights

Displaying a large banner with an image of the Statue of Liberty waving a "Boycott Liberty Mutual" sign and stating "Liberty Mutual Insurance Cheats Policyholders and Accident Victims," protesters in New York City greeted hundreds of passersby and handed out leaflets condemning Liberty Mutual's "contempt for its policyholders and accident victims."

Protesters on July 14th, in the heavily trafficked Union Square area in Manhattan, spotlighted the personal injury case of Detroit area resident Cheryl Harris. The handout says: "Liberty Mutual's handling of Ms. Harris' case is representative of the widespread shameful conduct of Liberty Mutual to cheat victims and policyholders in order to rake in excessive profits." The leaflet notes that Liberty Mutual CEO David Long's compensation was $20 million in 2017.

"I decided to investigate Liberty Mutual after Ms. Harris contacted me," said Ray Rogers, Director of NYC-based Corporate Campaign, Inc. "I studied numerous websites and hundreds of complaints against Liberty Mutual. Liberty Mutual auto and home policyholders and victims in accidents caused by Liberty Mutual insureds have many horror stories to tell and a lot of anguish to vent."

Rogers added, "Policyholders describe Liberty Mutual as 'crooks' and a 'sham' and compare them to the 'mafia.' They say 'Liberty Mutual should be investigated for insurance fraud, sued for illegal practices' and 'the government needs to step in and shut these clowns down for good!'"

The case involving 58-year old Cheryl Harris's debilitating injury and her mistreatment by Liberty Mutual are graphically described on When Liberty Mutual made its pitiful, insulting offer to compensate Ms. Harris, a Liberty Mutual representative said, "This is what we offer those in the Detroit area." Rogers asks, "Is Liberty Mutual's Detroit policy due to the fact that 83% of those residing in the City are African American?" Ms. Harris is no novice when it comes to trauma. After being left for dead at the age of 21, Ms. Harris led police to apprehend a Detroit serial killer, thus saving countless women's lives.

Protester Lena Melendez, co-founder of Latinos in Defense of Business and Housing, said "I am outraged over the conduct of Liberty Mutual which uses for its logo an image of the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of justice and enlightenment which Liberty Mutual is not." Public Advocate candidate David Eisenbach emphasized, "I am running for Public Advocate to protect millions of consumers in New York City from corporate fraud and to fight for the survival of our small businesses which are being decimated." Bennett Kremen, author of "The Performance" noted, "Liberty Mutual is notorious for being a leader in complaint rankings and stories of short-changing victims." Small Business owner Hank Dombrowski added, "Consumers beware. Liberty Mutual will take your premiums but leave you high and dry when you need them."

Rogers added that "Liberty Mutual's reprehensible behavior must not go unchallenged." He said his organization plans to expand efforts to put a spotlight on Liberty Mutual and is communicating through an email campaign to tens of thousands of labor unions, tenant organizations, public interest groups and political leaders about the irresponsibility and greed of Liberty Mutual's CEO David Long and other company executives.

Liberty Mutual advertises heavily throughout New York and, many say, is falsely promoted as a responsible company on various websites including websites of the New York City Department of Education and United University Professions, the union representing 42,000 academic and professional faculty and retirees throughout the State University of New York.


Ray Rogers pioneered the Corporate Campaign that led to the union victory in the epic labor struggle pitting thousands of textile workers against J.P. Stevens & Company depicted in the film "Norma Rae." A highlight in the campaign happened in September 1978 when the CEO's of both New York Life Insurance Company and J.P. Stevens resigned from each other's boards under heavy pressure from Rogers' corporate campaign. The Wall Street Journal in "Rogers' Tough Unorthodox Tactics Prevail in Stevens Organizing Fight" (10/21/80) described how pressure on Metropolitan Life Insurance by Rogers' campaign was the final straw that led to the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union victory.
