What is personal injury protection?

In New Jersey state, you can be entitled to compensation based on your motor vehicle accident and your injuries. The state has a Personal Injury Protection plan that is in place. This means that when you get involved in a motor vehicle accident your injuries are covered through this plan. For this plan, it doesn’t matter who was at fault for the accident. You will still be covered under the Personal Injury Protection plan.

Personal Injury Protection is part of driver’s insurance plan. For this plan, it allows people to receive medical care without having to place the blame on someone for a car accident. Since car accidents can result in serious injuries, these plans can be useful to provide the funds necessary for medical attention.

When filling out a PIP application, it is important to remember a few things. It should be filled out right away to ensure that the insurance company has the right information it needs to cover the cost of your medical bills. This will give you the opportunity to treat your injuries as soon as possible. This application will push your insurance company to see if you are entitled to benefits under the automobile personal injury protection law.

How can I seek legal action?

If you decide to seek legal action regarding the accident, you can be compensated for your sustained injuries. Some Personal Injury Protection plans may not provide a sufficient amount of compensation for the extent of the injuries you sustained. With this in mind, your next legal action can help to make up for this shortcoming. When pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, you can seek compensation for economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages can include medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and lost future wages. Noneconomic damages can include the pain and suffering you have had to endure from this accident. This can also be considered as compensation for your emotional distress from the situation.
