PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, a law firm with extensive experience in court cases involving the insurance industry, is investigating whether Infinity Auto Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Infinity Property & Casualty Corporation (NASDAQ: IPCC) failed to pay California policyholders for claims after they were injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver while a pedestrian or occupying a car other than their insured vehicle.
“Under California law, UM/UIM is a personal coverage, which means it covers policyholders and their family members wherever they are when hit by another car. Yet it seems Infinity is denying the claims of thousands of policyholders who are paying for coverage they are not receiving, coverage required by law.”
The firm’s investigation centers on Infinity Auto Insurance Company, a provider of car insurance throughout the state of California. Attorneys believe that California law and the company’s insurance policies require the payment of claims for policyholders or their live-in family members who are injured by uninsured or underinsured drivers, even when the policyholders are not in their vehicle.
However, attorneys believe that Infinity has, at least in some cases, denied legitimate claims made by policyholders injured by uninsured or underinsured drivers while not in their insured vehicle.
Hagens Berman Partner Robert B. Carey noted, “Under California law, UM/UIM is a personal coverage, which means it covers policyholders and their family members wherever they are when hit by another car.

Hagens Berman is continuing to investigate this matter and encourages California Infinity policyholders who were injured outside of their vehicle by an underinsured or uninsured driver to contact the firm.
