Determining Coverage in Tennessee Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Cases - On-Demand
Webinar is now available on-demand. NOTE: On-Demand webinars are not eligible for CLE credit.
Many questions arise when dealing with uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM) claims involving motor vehicle accidents.
Is uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage in place? What is an “uninsured motor vehicle”? What other insurance policies are applicable? Which uninsured motorist coverage applies when the insured is a passenger? What if there is no contact between the vehicles?
If you represent motor vehicle accident defendants or plaintiffs in Tennessee, you'll want to set aside just one hour for this valuable on-demand audioconference on recent developments and winning tactics.
Attorney Melanie Stewart will use three recent cases to illuminate the issues and provide insights:
- Garrison v. Bickford, 377 SW3d 659 (Tenn. 2012) – In a case in which parents and their son heard, but did not see, a fatal collision between a car and their other son's minibike, a bystander claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress did not constitute "bodily injury" within the meaning of uninsured motorist provisions of the parents' insurance policy.
- Martin v. Powers, 40 TAM 13-8 (Tenn.App. 2015) – In a case in which the plaintiff, the holder of an automobile liability insurance policy, was injured after being struck by a driver in a rental vehicle and sought coverage under an uninsured motorist coverage provision of his policy, a trial court properly held that the rental car agency was a self-insurer under Tennessee law, and hence, that the vehicle was not an "uninsured motor vehicle."
- Beech v. Doe, 39 TAM 27-4 (Tenn.App. 2014) – When a plaintiff, while crossing a highway to return to his truck, was struck by a car which fled the scene, a trial court properly granted summary judgment to the uninsured motorist carrier because the plaintiff was not "occupying" the covered auto at the time of the incident.
