Limited Tort Recoveries

Published on April 12, 2011 By Jon Ostroff

limited tort lawyersSome of our clients were told their injuries were not serious enough to get money for their pain and suffering. We often obtain money for clients who were previously told by an insurance adjuster or other law firm that it wasn’t possible.

Why not call us and see if we can do the same for you, especially since you don’t pay Ostroff Injury Law until you get paid!

Here is a summary of a few of the recoveries we have obtained for our Pennsylvania limited tort clients:

  • $1.95 Million Settlement for a man with a Limited Tort Insurance policy. Tom Brintzenhofe was injured when his car struck a van that had failed to stop at an intersection. Tom was released the same day from the emergency with no serious injuries diagnosed and he missed only one day of work following the accident. Ostroff Injury Law was able to overcome Tom’s limited tort insurance selection and stood by him from the time he first contacted the law firm. Eventually, Tom’s injuries proved to be much worse than emergency room doctors realized and Ostroff Injury Law was able to obtain a recovery for Tom and his wife Sherry of almost $2 million.
  • $2.1 million settlement reached within 18 months of the auto accident, after extensive mediation, for a limited tort client who suffered a severe pelvic injury as a passenger in an auto accident.
  • $900,000 settlement within 6 months of auto accident for a limited tort client who suffered a head injury, but was able to return to work within 5 months of her accident.
  • $296,000 policy limits settlement within 8 months of auto accident for a limited tort client who required wrist surgery after his car was struck by a drunk driver.
  • $150,000 UIM/liability policy limits settlement recovered 6 months after being hired by a limited tort client who sustained a fractured cervical vertebrae in an auto accident. She was told by other law firms that they couldn’t help her!
  • $105,000 UIM/liability policy limits settlement within 4 months of accident, for limited tort client who required surgery on her leg.
  • $49,500 settlement for a limited tort client who suffered a knee injury, obtained by our firm less than 3 months after he fired his previous lawyer who the client was dissatisfied with.
