"Recent Connecticut Supreme Court Decisions Impact Uninsured Motorist and Surety Laws," Connecticut Law Tribune February 16, 2015

“The Connecticut Supreme Court recently issued two important decisions impacting commonly litigated aspects of insurance coverage,” writes Michael F. Lettiero, an attorney in Goldberg Segalla’s Global Insurance Services Practice Group.

“In the first case, Guarino v. Allstate Prop. and Cas. Ins. Co., 315 Conn. 249 (Jan. 6, 2015), the court clarified and reaffirmed a central tenet of underinsured motorist law. In the second case,  Electrical Contractors, Inc. v. Ins. Co. of The State of Pennsylvania, 314 Conn. 749 (Dec. 16, 2014), the court addressed a critical aspect of surety law.”

In this article authored for the Connecticut Law Tribune’s special report on Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Litigation, Mike discusses the impact of these two cases and highlight the lessons that may be learned from them.
