If you have limited tort option, you give up your right to sue the negligent party for your non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, unless you suffer a serious injury or fall within one of the exceptions listed below. Serious injury has been defined as death, serious impairment of a body function or a serious permanent disfigurement.

They can be easily calculated by adding up the amounts paid out and, if necessary, computing each until the end of treatment and when the victim is able to return to work – whenever those dates may be.
