New Statute of Limitations Decision

On April 20, 2007,  the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals decided the case of State Farm v. Rosenthal in which it held that the Statute of Limitations on an underinsurance (UIM) claim in Pennsylvania is not measured from the date of the accident, as State Farm had claimed, but four years from the date the claimant settles with or obtains an award from the adverse driver for less than the value of his damages.
