Led by Beth Carter, Daniel Moraglia and Michael Saltzburg, this group handles virtually every aspect of automobile litigation, including liability, uninsured and underinsured motorist and first party benefits cases. Additionally, the firm regularly provides its automobile insurance clients with advice on automobile policy coverage issues. The firm’s experience in automobile litigation reaches back to its origins and continues through passage of the commonwealth’s first No-Fault Act in the 1970's to the advent of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law twenty years later and, most recently, statutory modification of joint and several liability in Pennsylvania.
The section regularly holds seminars for its clients concerning the changing landscape of automobile insurance law as well as best practices for handling automobile claims so as to avoid issues under Pennsylvania’s “bad faith” statute. When new developments warrant and will not await a seminar, the section members provide written legal updates to clients and respond to inquiries concerning them, all at no cost to the client.
