PA Auto Coverages-Avoiding E&O Potholes

Learn the inner workings to avoid E&O claims

The Pa. Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law (MVFRL) is laden with many E&O tripping hazards, and we have designed this course to help you avoid them all. Our coverage experts and association staff have developed this one-of-a-kind course—interweaving case law, statutory requirements and carrier expectations—to meet the needs of any agent selling auto insurance in the Keystone State.

Interpretation of Pa. Auto Law is evolving

Over the last decade, a number of court cases have challenged what were considered settled interpretations of the Pa. Auto Law. So, whether you’re a veteran of the industry or a newbie discovering the world of insurance, this freshly minted course is guaranteed to teach you things you didn’t know about auto coverage.

The course explores a variety of issues, including:

  • different carrier requirements for UM/UIM stacking forms
  • how court cases change how forms are to be collected
  • differences between intra- and inter-policy stacking
  • limited tort elections that can revert to full tort (including the true meaning of “serious injury”)
  • circumstances that can make insureds lose first-party benefits
  • primary vs. excess, and coordination of benefits between multiple policies

FINAL Date/Location

Pittsburgh, Pa.—October 17
