TENNESSEE FARMERS MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY v. JUDY PAULINE SIMMONS ET AL.
Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys:

Clifton Corker, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Charles Casey.

David R. Shults, Erwin, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Farmers Mutual Insurance Company.

Judge: FRIERSON

This case presents an issue regarding the proper interpretation of a policy of insurance. The insurance company filed a declaratory judgment action against the defendants, seeking a determination from the trial court regarding whether the insurance policy afforded coverage for an accident involving a four-wheeler vehicle owned by one of the defendants. The accident resulted in the death of a minor, Ryan Casey. The child’s father intervened in the declaratory judgment action. Following a hearing, the trial court concluded that the policy did not provide coverage. The intervenor has appealed. Discerning no error, we affirm.
