My Insurance Policy States That I Have “Limitation on Lawsuit Threshold” on My Policy. What Does that Mean for Me?
Limitation of lawsuit is a choice which is made for you unless and until you decide that you want no limitation of lawsuit on your policy. According to Greg Prosmushkin, Esquire, the general public is unaware that when you purchase insurance coverage, you automatically are limited in your ability to make a claim for pain and suffering unless you actively chose no lawsuit threshold. Having a lawsuit threshold means that you cannot be successful in making a claim for personal injuries unless your suffer one of the following:
- Dismemberment (loss of a body part)
- Significant Disfigurement or Scarring
- Loss of a fetus
- Displaced fracture
- Permanent Injury, within a reasonable degree of medical probability
Cases where the limitation of lawsuit option is chosen are commonly referred to as Verbal Threshold Cases. These cases are very difficult to win. The lawyers at Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. are very experienced in making successful arguments for clients bound by the lawsuit limitation.

What if the Person at Fault Didn’t Have Insurance or Didn’t Have Enough Insurance to Compensate Me for the Damage They Caused?
At Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys and staff have specialized knowledge and over 20 years of true claims experience in handling cases where the person who caused the Accident was an uninsured motorist, and ones where the person at fault did not have enough insurance (underinsured motorist). These types of cases usually involve:
- Persons who were not authorized to operate the at fault motor vehicle.
- Persons who were operating a vehicle without insurance coverage.
- Persons who were operating a vehicle with too little insurance coverage.
- Passengers of vehicles where there was no insurance coverage.
- Persons who were operating a stolen vehicle.
- Persons who are at fault, but ran from the scene without identification.
Remember, in New Jersey, under-insured motorist coverage is “gap” coverage. In other words, if the at fault driver is only insured for $15,000.00 per accident, and you have $25,000.00 in underinsured motorist coverage, you are only entitled to $10,000.00 of additional coverage. This is why it is important to insure yourself correctly. Visit us for free to make sure you are covered correctly.
