Allstate Faces Class-Action Over Seat Belts

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - A class action lawsuit accuses Allstate Insurance of refusing to inspect or replace seat belts in cars that have been involved in accidents.

Lead plaintiff Robert Watts claims Allstate refused to pay for inspecting and repairing the seat belts in his 2005 Honda Civic after they were damaged in a collision.

Watts says Allstate promised to pay for "the direct and accidental loss" to insured cars but does not make good on its promise, leaving policyholders in danger and in violation of the law in most states. Plaintiff demand restitution and an injunction on charges of breach of contract, bad faith, fraud and RICO violations.

Plaintiffs are represented by Wendy York of Sacramento.
