Limited Tort(e) is no dessert

Often clients seek advice after they've been struck by another driver in a motor vehicle accident, and suffered injuries. They have a lot of questions and specifically they want to know whether they may pursue a lawsuit for injuries sustained, pain and suffering, and damages. In most cases we are able to assist clients with success in their cases, particularly when they are not at fault for the accident. However in some cases we are not able to help. This is because in these cases clients unfortunately have selected what is called "limited tort" motor vehicle insurance which restricts their ability to recover damages when they're not at fault. Not realizing the impact of their decision to save money, after an accident, their decision is met with regret.
