You May be Entitled to Full Tort Damages in a PA Car Accident
There are only a few things about car accidents that are black and white. Yet, there is an exception to limited tort insurance that is relatively straightforward. Pennsylvania limited tort law allows a person who is injured by a driver who is driving a car registered in a state other than Pennsylvania to recover full tort damages for his or her injuries. The driver’s address and the state in which his or her driver’s license was issued are irrelevant. Instead, this exception only takes into account the car’s license plates and whether the car was registered anywhere other than the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

While this exception may sound simple, some insurers may try to deny you the full tort damages to which you are legally entitled if you have been hurt by a car that is registered somewhere other than Pennsylvania. They may try to confuse the issue and convince you that are only entitled to limited tort damages.
