On Jan. 3, 2014, plaintiff Daniel Ancherani, 42, a pipe fitter/laborer, was rear-ended on Washington Avenue at Spruce Street, in Scranton. He had been stopped in order to turn into a mall's garage when his Mitsubishi Gallant was struck by a Honda Accord. He claimed neck and back injuries. He settled with the other driver for $100,000 but sought coverage from Government Employees Insurance Co. under his underinsured-motorist policy.
