FAQs About Personal Injury Law In New Jersey

Dealing with an injury can result in countless legal questions. You need clear answers and reliable guidance to help you make informed decisions about your health, your finances and your legal rights.

We’ve got the answers you’re looking for. Here are some of the most common questions we hear. Please reach out to us for further guidance on your situation.

Who pays your medical bills after a car accident in New Jersey?

Your own car insurance policy is the first place to turn for medical bill payment. State law requires all drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP), a part of your policy designed to cover medical expenses regardless of who’s at fault. PIP can cover a wide range of costs, from emergency services to rehabilitation.

What should you do after a car accident?

In the aftermath of a traffic accident, your safety comes first. If you can, move to a safe area and assess if anyone needs immediate medical help. Then, call the police to report the accident. Even if the collisions seem minor, having an official report can be crucial later on.

You should also be sure to exchange contact and insurance information with others involved in the accident. However, keep the conversation brief and don’t admit fault.

Take pictures of the scene if you can. It helps to have your own evidence.

Lastly, reach out to us as soon as you can. We will take swift steps to protect your rights and walk you through what steps to take next.

What is a third-party personal injury claim after a work injury?

When you’re hurt on the job, workers’ comp typically covers you regardless of fault. However, if someone other than your employer or coworkers was to blame, you may have grounds for a third-party personal injury claim. Common examples of third parties include contractors, equipment manufacturers and other drivers in work-related car accidents.

A third-party claim allows you to seek compensation for damages not covered by workers’ comp, such as pain and suffering. It’s a separate process from filing for workers’ comp. It can provide significant additional support during your recovery and long after, which is why it’s so critical to enlist an attorney who won’t overlook this option.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in third-party injury claims. You can turn to us for guidance on whether it’s an option in your situation.
