Tips for Purchasing Car Insurance in New Jersey

When drivers in New Jersey are choosing car insurance and how much liability coverage to buy, it can often be confusing on what options to select, how much to spend, and what amount of coverage is the right fit for you and your family. Many drivers are confronted with balancing their financial situation with their desire to protect themselves and their loved ones should an accident occur.

One of the most important decisions to make when purchasing automobile insurance is whether or not to select the “limitation on lawsuit” threshold option, or the “no limitation on lawsuit” threshold option.

Choosing the “limitation on lawsuit” threshold option will lower your premium, however, it will limit your rights to sue the responsible party following a motor vehicle accident in which you were injured, unless you have sustained a permanent injury based on objective evidence. Also, your selection, in certain circumstances, can also bind your family members who lived in your household, such as your spouse and children. There are some exceptions to this rule, such as when your accident involves a commercial vehicle.

We recommend that you choose the “No Limitation on Lawsuit” threshold option, since you will be able to sue for all of your injuries, including pain and suffering, without having to meet the higher legal standard.

While New Jersey law requires all drivers to maintain automobile insurance, unfortunately, many drivers choose to save money at the expense of not having adequate insurance to cover their losses if they were involved in a serious accident. This puts themselves, and others, at risk. Therefore, our firm strongly recommends that you discuss your automobile insurance needs with an experienced insurance broker or a knowledgeable attorney on this subject.
