DAVID GRANT ORNDORFF v. ERIE INSURANCE EXCHANGE

Torts — Wrongful failure to settle insurance claim — Good faith

In 2016, Appellant David Grant Orndorff (“Mr. Orndorff”) was seriously injured when the motorcycle he was riding struck another vehicle attempting to make a left turn. The driver was insured by Appellee Erie Insurance Exchange (“Erie”) under a policy with a liability coverage limit of $30,000. Five months after the accident, Mr. Orndorff rejected Erie’s offer of its insured’s policy limits in full settlement of his claims against the insured.
