Understanding New Jersey Law And The Right To Sue After A Car Accident

After a car accident, you and your family are trying to move on and resume your day-to-day activities. However, you are realizing you may have permanent problems from the injuries suffered. Your life has been negatively affected at work and at home, physically and socially. You wonder whether you may have a right to a claim.

New Jersey law can make personal injury claims difficult. The state has a "verbal threshold' law for claims that restricts a person's right to sue. However, the right attorney who is highly experienced in car accident injuries can help you navigate the complexities and seek the compensation you deserve.

What Is Verbal Threshold?

When purchasing insurance, New Jersey residents can choose a higher cost policy that provides you with an unlimited right to sue. A less expensive option — verbal threshold — does not allow an individual to sue unless he or she can satisfy certain requirements of law. These conditions must exist:

  • There must be a serious medical injury.
  • The injury must be permanent.
  • There must be evidence of the permanency of the injury.

Unfortunately, without the right legal assistance, people with serious injuries can be denied the right to sue if they had verbal threshold. At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, we have a successful record of accomplishment in helping those injured receive financial compensation for their losses even when they had verbal threshold. Attorney Jack L. Stillman utilizes his experience to find the experts and evidence to demonstrate the permanency of an injury when it is affecting your life.
