What is “the deductible”? by Patricia Santucci
If your claim for pain and suffering meets the “threshold” there is a $30,000.00 deductible from the amount of damages that you would otherwise have received. There is also a $15,000.00 deductible for Family Law Act claims. The deductible is not applied if your pain and suffering damages award is $100,000.00 or more. In terms of the Family Law Act claims, the deductible will not apply if damages are awarded at $50,000.00 or more, or when death occurs. (86)
