I was sued in small claims for property damage from an auto accident. I only had $5000 in coverage for property damage but the total amount was $6550 in repairs. The total judgment was $7200 to include rental car. Then a year later and the same guy sued me for the same accident, but this time for his injury because he wanted more pain and suffering money than the insurance company offered. My insurance company said to tell the judge that this is res judicata and request that it is dismissed. Again the judge found in favor of the plaintiff, $7500. Was my claims adjuster wrong, or can I appeal this? I know I don't have to pay because I have $15,000 in injury coverage, but this just seems wrong. Can he just keep dragging me to court for the same accident?
