The Law Office of Kedar Bhasker is scheduled to present oral argument on January 7, 2020 before the New Mexico Supreme Court regarding a certified question of law.
Mr. Bhasker represents an individual who claims that he was sold illusory, or sham minimal limits underinsured motorists coverage by the defendant, Safeco. A class action complaint was filed and is pending in federal court. Mr. Bhasker’s client was injured in a car crash and was denied underinsured motorists benefits because of an ambiguous offset that was applied.
There are others who have also been sold sham UIM coverage and the answer to the certified question will provide the federal court guidance in denying or granting a motion to dismiss that was filed by Safeco.
