Indiana Supreme Court ruling featured in National DRI Publication for coverage opinion

The Firm obtained a ruling in favor of SMITH FISHER MAAS HOWARD & LLOYD’s client, Erie Insurance, from the Indiana Supreme Court in the case of Robinson v. Erie Insurance Exchange.  The ruling addressed the issue of whether an automobile policy provided uninsured motorist coverage for automobile property damage caused by a hit-and-run driver where no personal injury had occurred. The Indiana Court of Appeals had held that a widely used and fairly standard definition of uninsured motor vehicle was ambiguous, but the Indiana Supreme Court disagreed and sided with Erie and with the insurance industry on how the language should be interpreted.  This is a great result for our insurance clients.
