The Law Office of Kedar Bhasker will present oral argument on January 7, 2020 to the New Mexico Supreme Court regarding a certified question of law.

The question arises from a claim that Mr. Bhasker’s client 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.
