New Jersey Car Crash Attorneys Helping Clients Receive Compensation
For more than 20 years, our NJ car accident lawyers have helped victims of all kinds of auto accident injuries get the money they need for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses. Cases we handle involve the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Hit and run
- Wrecks due to defects: seat belt failure, etc. (See also our product liability page.)
- SUV rollover

We also take cases involving uninsured and underinsured motorists. In New Jersey car accident cases, complications can arise when the negligent party does not have insurance or does not have adequate insurance coverage. In most instances, if the injured party also owns an automobile, they will have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage available. This insurance will make up for the lack of insurance by the negligent party or provide additional coverage if that party does not have enough insurance coverage for the accident. Our Brick auto accident lawyers have the experience to examine all of the important issues of your case and find other ways to get you the money you need.
New Jersey Law: Verbal/Lawsuit Threshold
In New Jersey, about 80 percent of all car accident cases are subject to the verbal/lawsuit threshold. When you purchase an auto insurance policy, you can choose one that includes verbal/lawsuit threshold, which makes for less expensive premiums. However, a verbal threshold also limits your ability to sue except in cases where you have sustained serious permanent injuries, death, permanent scarring, and a few other consequences delineated by the statute. For this reason it is important to have an attorney review your insurance policy and the nature and extent of your auto accident injuries to see if your case will be one that can pierce the threshold.
