Why Limited Tort Does not Have to Mean Limited Recovery
We don’t deny it. In many cases, Pennsylvania car accident victims have to fight harder and more aggressively for limited tort settlements than they do for full tort settlements. Insurance companies often want to use limited tort as an excuse to deny fair and just settlements. They expect that accident victims, and many of their attorneys, will accept that limited tort means limited payment.
We don’t accept that. We believe that you deserve the help of a limited tort lawyer who will zealously advocate for your full and complete recovery as permitted by Pennsylvania law.
We Help Limited Tort Victims Covered by Exceptions
Contrary to what many people believe, limited tort is not absolute in Pennsylvania. There are specific exceptions that may allow you to recover full damages, including those for pain and suffering. For example, you may recover full damages, even with limited tort insurance, if:
- You were injured while riding a motorcycle.
- You were injured as a pedestrian.
- You were a passenger on a commercial vehicle such as a bus, taxi or truck when you were injured.
- The driver who caused your crash was convicted of drunk driving.
- The driver who caused your accident was driving a car that was registered somewhere other than in Pennsylvania.
- You suffered injuries that have resulted in a serious impairment to a significant bodily function.
