For example, there are certain situations in which a written notice of claim must be filed within 90 days in order to protect your rights. Do not delay- our free case evaluations make the decision to contact a professional car accident lawyer at Birkhold & Maider, a no-risk decision.
In Essex County Whose At Fault In A Car Accident?
New Jersey is a no-fault insurance state. That means that should you be involved in an automobile accident, your own insurance company is the one responsible for paying any medical bills related to the accident, no matter who actually caused the collision. Should you not have your own automobile insurance, your medical bills may be payable through the policy of a relative you live with, or even through the insurance policy for the vehicle in which you were in at the time of the accident. Coverage for medical bills in a car accident is paid through a provision called Personal Injury Protection, or PIP. A Essex County car accident lawyer at Birkhold & Maider can assist in determining the correct insurance company to provide PIP benefits to you, along with determining the correct PIP policy limits. That’s just the beginning of the legal considerations governing auto accidents in New Jersey.
There are also situations in which you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver. It is important to know your rights in these situations, which may include a claim against your own insurance company, the host vehicle’s insurance company or even against the State of New Jersey.
