Insurance Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC39253 - Doyle v. Universal Underwriters Ins. Co. ("The plaintiff, Robert Doyle, appeals from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in his favor in the amount of $5924 in this action to recover underinsured motorist benefits under an automobile insurance policy issued by the defendant, Universal Underwriters Insurance Company (Universal). The plaintiff suffered injuries in a collision between his automobile and that of an underinsured motorist, Neil Nilson. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly determined that he was collaterally estopped from relitigating the amount of damages awarded to him in binding arbitration with Nilson. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
