Making Sense of New Jersey Car Accident Law

New Jersey insurance laws are complicated in auto accident cases, especially if you chose the limitation on lawsuit option, which limits your right to recover damages unless your injury falls within one of six categories. If you have been injured in a car accident, I offer a free initial consultation to answer your insurance questions and explain your options.

I'm Robert A. Jones, a Livingston personal injury and car accident lawyer. I have been helping people injured in car, truck and motorcycle collisions for more than 35 years. I have handled accidents involving severe injuries, as well as cases involving injuries that may not seem serious at first, but which have a significant impact on your life and health. When you have an injury that meets the threshold, I know how to present your case so that it will be clear to the court that you do meet the threshold. This will enable you to receive proper compensation for your injuries.

In one case, a woman who came to my office complained that her knee was clicking after a car accident. While she had seen a doctor after the accident, she never asked the doctor to look at her knee. I recommended that the woman go back to her doctor, who discovered she had a cartilage tear and needed surgery. As a result of the knee injury, the woman's injury case met the threshold for compensation under her New Jersey no-fault insurance.

If you suffer a serious vehicle injury, it is important see a doctor as soon as possible. It is also important to follow your doctor's instructions and to go back to your doctor if you notice other symptoms after the car accident. Following up is important not just for your physical recovery, but also for your financial recovery.
