Financial Compensation for South NJ Auto Accidents

Residents of South New Jersey who are injured in auto accidents may have legal rights to financial compensation. This applies to pedestrian accidents, auto accidents and truck accidents. Claims may be made for PIP (personal injury protection) benefits under NJ auto insurance law.

In addition, in situations when an accident is caused by another driver, an injured party may be able to file a claim to receive financial compensation for pain and suffering and financial losses. However, NJ auto injury laws are very complex. Claims for pain and suffering can only be made in certain circumstances, such as death, disfigurement, fractured limbs, permanent injury, etc. This body of law is known as verbal threshold law.
