Underinsured Motorists Case Reinstated - Auto Owners - Spine FracturePosted on Dec 04, 2009
The teenager's case was settled for $20,000 against the negligent driver and a lawsuit was filed against Auto Owners Insurance on an underinsured motorists claim. The trial court dismissed the case after deciding that the injuries did not affect the victims normal lifestyle. The Court of Appeals reversed that decision and reinstated the case. The Court determined that his "ability to lead his normal life has been affected." The matter will now go back to the trial court.
