You May be Entitled to Full Tort Damages in PA
You were not driving at the time of your Pennsylvania car accident. In fact, you paid someone else to drive for you. You may have been a passenger in a bus, truck, taxi or another type of commercial vehicle. You trusted the driver to get you to your destination safely, but that didn’t happen. Instead, your driver failed to get you to your destination safely and you were injured in a Pennsylvania car accident. Now, you are wondering if your limited tort car insurance is going to compensate you for all of your damages.
You are Entitled to Full Tort Damages If You are Hurt as a Passenger in a Commercial Vehicle
Typically, limited tort insurance does not compensate injured car accident victims for pain and suffering unless they fit into an exception to the Pennsylvania limited tort insurance law. If you are hurt in a car accident while you are the passenger in a commercial vehicle, then you qualify for a limited tort exception, and you may be entitled to full tort damages for your Pennsylvania car accident injuries.
Even if you are insured with limited tort coverage and you were injured in a crash that doesn’t fall under one of these exceptions, if you suffered an injury in a PA auto crash, call us. More often then not, we can still obtain a recovery for you.
