Guidance Throughout A Complex Process After An Injury
After you sustain a serious injury from a car accident, you might consider taking legal action against the driver who caused the crash. However, New Jersey is a no-fault state. This means that to pursue damages after a car accident, your injury must meet certain requirements regarding its severity.
This is a complicated process to navigate, especially while managing the aftermath of a serious injury. At Weisberg & Klauber, LLC, we assist individuals across New Jersey in first assessing whether their injury meets the tort threshold to recover compensation. If so, we will then pursue damages to compensate for your medical expenses, property damage, potentially lost wages, and pain and suffering.
What Is The Tort Threshold?
As a no-fault state, car accident victims in New Jersey must first turn to their own coverage to seek compensation under their personal injury protection (PIP). This protection can compensate you for medical expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses, as your coverage allows. This compensation can offer much-needed financial relief. Unfortunately, it will not compensate you for pain and suffering.
Only those who suffered severe injuries may pursue damages against the at-fault driver that step beyond the state’s no-fault rules. Such injuries could include:
- Permanent or significant scarring or disfigurement
- Loss of a fetus
- Other permanent injuries
Family members may also pursue damages after a loved one dies from their injuries caused by the negligence of another. We can evaluate whether your injuries may qualify to pursue damages beyond the compensation your own insurance provides.
