If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident and you have limited tort coverage on your Pennsylvania insurance policy, your carrier may have already told you that you can’t file a claim for pain and suffering. This sweeping statement is often wrong and misleading.
It’s true that having limited tort insurance coverage can put a big obstacle between you and fair compensation for your injuries. However, all is not lost. The lawyers at Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers know the ins and outs of Pennsylvania auto accident law. We have recovered damages for pain and suffering for hundreds of people with limited tort policies.
Exceptions to Limited Tort Coverage for Injured Victims
In Pennsylvania, there are six specific exceptions that will allow an auto accident victim with limited tort coverage to recover full damages for their injuries. These exceptions include:
The victim was on a motorcycle when the crash happened.
The injured person was a pedestrian.
The victim was a passenger on a bus, truck, taxi or other commercial vehicle when the crash occurred.
The at-fault driver received a DUI for drunk driving.
The driver who caused the accident was operating a vehicle registered in a state other than Pennsylvania.
The victim’s injuries resulted in a serious impairment to a significant bodily function.
Many of our clients have recovered damages for pain and suffering because Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers proved one of these exceptions. Even when an exception did not apply, our attorneys have proven and won limited tort cases for our clients. Over more than two decades, our personal injury recoveries have been some of the highest in Pennsylvania. If you sustained injuries in an auto accident and you have limited tort coverage, talk to us.
