Your First Source Of Compensation: Personal Injury Protection Coverage

In New Jersey, personal injury protection (PIP) is a mandatory part of your auto insurance policy. PIP covers medical expenses and, in some cases, lost wages and other damages.

This coverage is available no matter who was at fault. It’s your first line of financial defense after an accident.

However, PIP has limits that depend on your specific policy. We can help you understand your policy and ensure that you’re getting all the benefits available to you.

When To Sue For Additional Compensation

If the other driver was at fault, and your medical bills and other losses exceed your PIP coverage, you might consider pursuing a personal injury lawsuit for additional compensation. A successful outcome will cover the full range of your expenses and impacts, from medical bills to pain and suffering.

Our lawyers are ready to assess your situation to determine whether this is a viable avenue for you. If so, we will gather the necessary evidence to build a rock-solid claim and vigorously advocate for you.
