(NEWSER) ‚?? Andres Carrasco was likely happy to hear in June that he was being awarded a settlement from an insurance company after one of its workers allegedly assaulted him. He was definitely not happy to see how $21,000 of that settlement recently arrived at his attorney's office-in 5-gallon containers filled with coins, reports NBC Los Angeles.

"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," Carrasco's attorney tells CBS Los Angeles.

According to Carrasco's lawyer, eight employees from Adriana's Insurance drove up in a van and dumped the payment in his waiting room. The 73-year-old Carrasco tells CBS LA that the buckets are "too heavy" and takes Adriana's to task for its seemingly spiteful compensation.

"I am disappointed by the way Adriana's treats their customers and the elderly," he said in a statement.

Insurance company reps haven't commented on the change conundrum. (It's not the first time someone has settled a bill with colossal coinage-including this man, this man, and this woman.)
