Who pays my medical bills after an auto accident in New Jersey?
If you have been seriously injured in a New Jersey motor vehicle accident, you may wonder whether you are responsible for covering your medical expenses. Luckily, New Jersey offers Personal Injury Protection, which is a form of no-fault insurance. This means that even if you played a role in causing the accident, your PIP insurance will cover at least some of your medical expenses and lost wages immediately after the accident. However, you should note that PIP does not extend to motorcyclists, so they must either purchase a separate motorcycle insurance policy or pay out of pocket.
What happens if I am injured on the job in New Jersey?
If you have been hurt in a workplace accident, you may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation. This is a form of insurance that most employers carry in the event that an accident happens or an employee contracts an occupational disease. You may be entitled to various Workers’ Compensation benefits such as medical expenses, temporary disability, and more. However, you should note that if your accident was caused by the negligence of a third party, you may need to bring a third-party claim against them, instead of filing a Workers’ Compensation claim with your employer.
How long do I have to file my personal injury claim in New Jersey?
If you have been seriously injured due to another party’s negligence and wish to take legal action against them, you must do so within the statute of limitations. This acts as a deadline by which you must file a claim. For personal injury, Workers’ Compensation, and medical malpractice cases in New Jersey, you must file your claim within two years of the date of the accident. If you fail to meet this deadline, you may be barred from taking legal action against the negligent party. Of course, there are certain exceptions depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, so it is always best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Is my case different if I am injured on municipal property?
If you have been seriously injured on municipal property and wish to take legal action, you may need to file a Notice of Claim. This acts as a similar deadline to the statute of limitations, but the timeframe is typically much shorter. You must file a Notice of Claim with the municipality within the timeframe to notify them that you plan to take legal action for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens caused by their negligence.
