New Jersey Car Insurance Laws Complicate Many Car Accident Cases
Drivers in New Jersey have to make several decisions when they purchase auto insurance that can impact what happens after they suffer injuries in a car accident. However, many people do not understand their options or how this could affect them.
The complex insurance laws in the State of New Jersey could restrict your ability to pursue and recover some types of damages in a car accident case. The Morelli Law Firm team can help you understand your policy after a collision.
No matter the options you originally chose when you bought insurance, you may be able to pursue a case to hold the at-fault motorist liable. If you suffered certain types of serious injuries, you can collect pain and suffering damages. Examples of qualified injuries include:
- The loss of a part of your body or loss of use.
- Major disfigurement or scarring.
- A displaced fracture, which often requires surgery.
- The loss of pregnancy.
- Other permanent injuries as determined by objective medical care providers.
At the Morelli Law Firm, we can review your New Jersey auto insurance policy and discuss your serious injuries. Then we can determine if we believe you have a right to recover tangible and intangible losses through a liability insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
