Attorney Russel Bopp: Hi my name is Russell Bopp. I’m one of the attorneys here at Marcus and Mack, and one of the questions that we often get from clients or potential clients is: What does it mean if I have limited tort or full tort on my insurance policy?
The quick and easy answer to that is that when they’re limited tort under their insurance policy it means they actually have given up the right to pursue non-economic damages, that’s a legal terminology basically for pain and suffering, so if they’re limited tort under their insurance policy it means they’ve given up the right to pursue pain and suffering damages.
There are exceptions to that under Pennsylvania law and it’s important for them to contact Marcus and Mack and we can talk to them about what those exceptions are and if they would apply in their case.
If they have any questions, feel free to reach out to Marcus and Mack at our office or online.
