Insurance Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Carey, Sean


AC45627 - Bouchard v. Wheeler (“This case concerns the proper application of General Statutes § 38a-336, commonly known as the underinsured motorist statute. See Tannone v. Amica Mutual Ins. Co., 329 Conn. 665, 676, 189 A.3d 99 (2018). The defendant Safeco Insurance Company appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in accordance with the stipulation that it entered into with the plaintiffs Caitlyn Bouchard, Kayla Bouchard and Madalyn Bouchard. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly concluded that the automobile in question constituted an underinsured motor vehicle, as that term is used in § 38a-336. We agree and, accordingly, reverse the judgment of the trial court.”)
