Appellate Ruling That UIM Offset Includes Umbrella Policy Limits Stands

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has denied allocatur in the two companion underinsured motorist cases of D'Adamo v. Erie Ins. Exchange and Holocher v. Erie Ins. Exchange, thereby allowing to stand a Superior Court panel's ruling that benefits collected under a tortfeasor's umbrella insurance policy can serve as an offset against the amount of recoverable underinsured motorist benefits in a given matter.
