Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Arbitration

Trial Judge

Kathleen Pantle

Appellate Judge



Policy language did not require insured to name an arbitrator in order to "commence" the arbitration.

Fact Summary

Where policy required insured to make a "demand" for arbitration on UIM claim, insured's letter that made a "request" for arbitration was sufficient.  Nothing else was required of insured to "commence" the arbitration within the policy's three-year limitations period.
