Insurance companies follow strict legal definitions of what serious injury really is, and even though there is a serious injury exception for limited tort, you still may not get compensation for your pain and suffering.
There are a few instances in which you could still make a claim for pain and suffering if you have limited tort on your policy. One of these exceptions is serious injury. There is a strict legal definition of what serious injury is and even though yours or a loved one’s injury is severe, it may not qualify for the exception.
Relying on exceptions such as these is never a good idea as it’s impossible to know what may happen if you or a loved one are ever in a severe accident. It’s best to know that you are protected regardless of the circumstances and having full coverage, including full tort, can give you that peace of mind.
