    While in California the CA Insurance Code does require an insured insurance company to provide an insured with written notice of the statute of limitations in uninsured motorist claims, there is no such requirement in underinsured motorist claims. You should consult with an attorney specializing in automobile accidents and personal injuries immediately to ensure that you have properly preserved your claim against the at fault party and for UIM benefits against your own insurance company.
