Vehicle accident victims with limited tort insurance often face unexpected obstacles to recovering money they deserve for harm and losses they suffer due to the carelessness of others.

If you’ve been injured in Pennsylvania, your insurance agent, other attorneys or an insurance company adjuster may tell you that because you selected limited tort, you aren’t entitled to any compensation. Alternatively, the insurance company may try to settle with you by offering a fraction of what you are really entitled to.

After successfully handling thousands of limited tort cases, we have obtained full recoveries for most of our clients with limited tort insurance policies.

Recoveries for our limited tort clients exceed tens of millions of dollars. Just recently, we recovered $1.95 million dollars for a client with limited tort, who was told by three lawyers he contacted before us that he didn’t have a case and wasn’t entitled to a recovery.

At Ostroff Injury Law, we won’t let the insurance company push you around.
