Car Accident FAQs

Q1: What should I do if I am seriously injured in a New Jersey car accident?

A1: If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, it is important to immediately seek medical attention. If possible, obtain the defendant’s car insurance information at your earliest opportunity. Notify your car insurance carrier to get a claim opened up for you on your behalf, as this also allows you to get your medical bills and property damage paid for.

Q2: Is New Jersey a no-fault state?

A2: Yes, New Jersey is a no-fault state. Regardless of who is at-fault for your car accident, your medical bills can be paid by your own car insurance carrier. If you were seriously injured and the vehicle that caused your accident is at-fault, it is vital that your rights are protected. Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced New Jersey Personal Injury law firm. The New Jersey car accident attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm have over 35 years of experience, and can help alleviate the stresses that comes when dealing with your insurance provider, medical care facility, and holding the person who hurt you accountable for your injuries.

Q3: If I have selected the “limitation lawsuit threshold” on my car insurance, what does this mean?

A3: In New Jersey, if you are in an auto accident, and you have chosen the “limitation on lawsuit option” for your car insurance coverage, in order to bring a lawsuit, you will need to prove that you have sustained a permanent injury based on objective evidence, even if the other driver was at-fault.
