Dealing with Your Insurance Company
New Jersey insurance companies are supposed to cover all your needs after an accident. However, many are far more interested in making a profit than paying the total cost of their injuries. You may receive a fair settlement from your insurance adjuster. Still, that amount will probably cover your current medical bills and does not consider any future treatments or complications.
How Long Can You Sue After a Car Accident in NJ?
According to New Jersey Revised Statutes §2A:14-2, you must file a personal injury claim two years from the car accident date. If you need to recover compensation to pay for vehicle damage, Revised Statute § 2A:14-1 states that you have six years from the incident date to file a property damage claim.
Is NJ a No-Fault State?
Yes, New Jersey is a no-fault state. Your insurance policy typically pays for accident damages, regardless of whether you or another driver was at fault.
New Jersey uses a “choice” no-fault insurance system, allowing you to opt out of the no-fault rules. You are typically limited to no-fault coverage after an accident if you choose the basic policy. The no-fault law does not apply to property damage. The person at fault for the accident is the party who pays for car damage in a no-fault state.
