Pain and Suffering Lawsuit
Our insurance lawyers explain a third-party lawsuit and the compensation you’re entitled to for your personal injuries after a car accident
A third-party case is between the auto accident victim and the driver who caused the auto accident. In a third-party case, the auto accident victim sues the at-fault driver for pain and suffering (non-economic damages), and excess economic damages (which may include excess medical expenses once the new No-Fault PIP medical benefits coverage levels become available in policies issued or renewed after July 1, 2020).
In a third-party case, damages are usually paid out from the wrong-doer’s insurance company.
Time limits for third party cases
If the automobile accident in a third-party case took place more than three years ago, the victim cannot sue the other driver or the other driver’s insurance company for injuries, no matter how serious. The only exception is for minors.
