This is the 1st of three videos Jon discusses about limited tort. It can be such a confusing topic. Jon explains it completely so you can understand it more and how you can help yourself and your family.

Limited tort is far less expensive and therefore more appealing to consumers. Unfortunately insurance carriers will deny claims for “serious injuries” if they are not dead, disfigured or crippled. In addition, some insurance carriers have blanket policies to deny all “limited tort” claims regardless of the type of injury. Therefore, if you are not educated in and have a complete understanding of the law, you could be putting yourself and your family at risk.
