Pa. Supreme Court To Decide Issue of Fleet Insurance Stacking

Date: September 24, 2007

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently presided over oral argument on an appeal of a Superior Court decision that denied an estate’s claim for $1.15 million in UM/UIM coverage. The decedent in the case was a corporate executive who was killed while operating a company vehicle. The argument set for by counsel for the executive’s estate in Everhart v. PMA Insurance Group challenged the Pennsylvania General Assembly’s adoption of amendments to the state automobile insurance law 17 years ago. Those amendments require policyholders to provide waivers rejecting stacked UM/UIM coverage. The estate in the Everhart case argues that this action by the Assembly invalidates case law barring such coverage under corporate policies.
