What Happens To Your PA Limited Tort Coverage When You are Hurt by a Drunk Driver

If you’ve been hurt in Pennsylvania drunk driving accident and you have limited tort insurance coverage then it important to understand your rights.  In some cases, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering.

Pennsylvania law specifically allows a person covered by limited tort insurance to recover full tort damages if the person responsible for the accident was convicted of or accepted responsibility for Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) for driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance.  In other words, the law does not allow you to recover full tort damages just because the driver was arrested for drunk driving.  Instead, the other driver must have been onvicted of or accepted ARD.
