Erie Insurance Company v. Scott L. Smith et al., Case No. 2015-1419
Sixth District Court of Appeals (Ottawa County)
- For the purpose of uninsured motorist coverage involving an unknown hit-and-run operator, can independent corroborative evidence required from the insured be derived from the testimony of the person seeking coverage?
- Must additional required evidence be completely independent of, and not derived from, the testimony of the person seeking coverage?- - Can an insurance policy that contains the language in R.C. 3937.18(B)(3) regarding independent corroborative evidence be considered ambiguous leading to an interpretation in favor of the insured?
