LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — An insurance company has paid off a $21,000 settlement to an elderly east LA man in buckets of loose coins.

Andres Carrasco, 76, filed a lawsuit against Adriana’s Insurance two years ago after he was allegedly assaulted by one of its employees.

The company finally agreed to settle the case recently and paid Carrasco in buckets of spare change.

“There’s over 16 buckets of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. It’s going to take us at least, conservatively, one week to count that whole amount of money,” attorney Antonio Gallo said.

“It’s too heavy,” Carrasco added.

Adriana’s Insurance did not return calls for comment.
