1. Claim is commenced by filing a demand for arbitration, not by the filing of a lawsuit.
2. Amount of Recovery is determined by agreement (settlement) or arbitration award.
3. An arbitration award is binding, up to the amount set forth in the Uninsured Motorist (UM) provisions of your auto policy.
4. In an Underinsured Motorist (UIM) claim, you must first recover the at-fault party's policy limits, in order to enable you to pursue your UIM coverage.
5. Technical mistakes in providing the insurer with notice, failing to make a timely demand for arbitration, failure to designate your arbitrator, etc. may jeopardize your claim.
You need to talk to an attorney who knows how to successfully navigate UM and UIM claims.
