When a Pennsylvania motorist selects the limited right to sue option, he and the members of his household surrender important constitutional rights in pursuing recovery for losses, despite the fact that the other driver may be completely at fault and legally responsible. The limited right to sue option allows an insured and the members of his household to seek recovery for all medical and other out-of-pocket expenses, but not for pain and suffering or other non-monetary damages, unless one of the following circumstances applies to the accident:
Thus, selecting the limited right to sue option does not affect an insured’s eligibility to recover other types of damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property loss or damage. In this situation, an insured may file a claim against the at-fault driver for these damages or use the PIP or medical coverage for injury-related costs from his own policy.
