Class Sues Allstate For Injury Coverage

     FORT LAUDERDALE (CN) – Allstate Insurance cheated policyholders who sought benefits for personal injuries during three months while the Florida Legislature squabbled over the state’s no-fault laws, a class action claims in Broward County Court.

     At issue is the 3-month period from Oct. 1, 2007 until Jan. 1, 2008, during which the State of Florida’s no-fault liability system was allowed to “sunset,” then was renewed. Plaintiffs say Allstate charged premiums for no-fault personal injury coverage during those three months, then denied claims submitted for injuries suffered then.
     Named plaintiffs Frances Goodwin is represented by Edward Zebersky of Hollywood, Fla.
