Auto Accident Lawyer

Auto accidents or car accidents can be life-altering injuries for victims of auto accidents. Auto Accidents, unfortunately, happen too often in the State of New Jersey which is the most densely populated State in the United States.  When faced with a serious automobile injury a   dedicated car or auto accident lawyer is essential to obtain the just compensation.

In a serious car injury, no amount of money is enough to put the person in the place that they would have been before the accident. Chiropractors, Doctors of Osteopathy,  and Medical Doctors routinely attempt the least invasive methods to correct the car accident or auto accident injuries, but unfortunately, some car accidents or auto accident injuries are permanent injuries.  Moreover, unfortunately, some car accidents or auto accident injuries require surgery or a psychiatrist.


Car or Auto Accidents fall under the Automobile Insurance Cost Reduction Act (1998) to keep down insurance costs.  The Act set up a revised "Limitation on Lawsuit" option which restricts when an injured person from a car or auto accident may bring a claim against an at-fault driver. However, generally, when a car or auto accident involves an at-fault driver who is driving a truck, a commercial van, a bus, or other than a conventional passenger car, the lawsuit limitation will not protect the at-fault driver. The reader should seek counsel from an auto or car accident lawyer for more information.

The injured car or auto driver may be permitted to meet the lawsuit limitation threshold if the injured auto or car driver can show one of the following  results:

  1. Death
  2. Dismemberment
  3. Significant Disfigurement or Scarring
  4. Displaced Fracture
  5. Loss of Fetus (or unborn child)
  6. A permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability, Other than scarring or disfigurement.

Once the victim of a car or auto accident meets the lawsuit limitation regarding one injury the victim of a car or auto accident is entitled for compensation for all injuries when all of the injuries may not meet the limitation.  The issue of whether the victim in an auto accident has met the lawsuit limitation is complicated and is the source of much litigation between insurance companies and car and auto accident lawyers for victims of car or auto accidents. The issue of "permanent injury" has a legal definition and requires a certification from a licensed physician who has treated the patient that states under the penalty of perjury that the plaintiff has sustained an injury that meets one of the above specific types of injury that meets the limitation.
