The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania recently issued its decision in AAA Mid-Atlantic
Insurance Company v. Ryan, a case in which HGSK partner
had filed an Amicus Curiae Brief on behalf of the Pennsylvania Association
for Justice. The Pennsylvania Association for Justice is an organization
of trial attorneys in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania devoted to representing
the interests of victims and the fair administration of justice throughout
the state. In that case, the Supreme Court held that a motor vehicle accident
victim was not entitled to duplicate payments for the same elements of
loss once fully compensated for injuries sustained in the accident. The
Supreme Court further held that any recoverable underinsured motorist
benefits were to be offset by recovery from any tortfeasors.
