Tremendous Supreme Court Victory
Posted By Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C.
In Gallagher v. GEICO, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania held that the
household exclusion in a personal auto policy is void and unenforceable
as violative against the terms and provisions of the Pennsylvania Motor
Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law. This exclusion has long been used
by insurers to disclaim coverage to policyholders with multiple automobile
policies in the household. With this decision, injured claimants will
now be able to recover the full extent of insurance coverage in the household.
Jim Haggerty of our office participated in the handling of the case and
co-authored the Amicus Brief on behalf of the Pennsylvania Association
for Justice. His efforts were instrumental in securing this favorable
decision for motor vehicle accident victims in Pennsylvania. HGSK remains
at the forefront of securing favorable results and fair compensation for
motor vehicle accident victims. HGSK is on your side.
