Types of Accidents We Can Handle
Unfortunately, it doesn’t always matter how cautious you are while driving if others on the road are not doing the same. When a car accident occurs, it is important to determine the exact cause so you can build a proper personal injury claim. The judge looks to see if the cause of the accident was to blame for the injury. Our team has experience handling a wide variety of car accident claims and can help prove negligence was a factor.
Car accidents are often caused by the following:
- Intoxicated driving
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe weather conditions
- Unsafe road design
- Fatigued driving
- Texting while driving
If the other driver was intoxicated, tired, or not paying attention when the accident occurred, they should be held accountable for their actions. With our team on your side, you can file the necessary claim to seek compensation. Whether you suffered from broken bones, contusions, lacerations, neck injury, or head injury in the accident, compensation can help cover the related medical expenses.
Filing NJPLIGA Benefits Claims
If you have been in an accident, you may be concerned with filing a claim as soon as possible. You do have the option of filing a claim with the New Jersey Proper-Liability Insurance Guaranty Association (NJPLIGA) following your motor vehicle collision.
In order to begin the claims process, you will need to file a Proof of Claim (POC) with the Liquidator. They will then forward this claim to NJPLIGA for review. It is important that you discuss your case with a New Jersey auto accident lawyer before taking any steps to file a claim.
Car Accident Claims & PIP Benefits
PIP, also known as personal injury protection benefits, is a package of benefits designed to cover the costs of any personal injury matter, including motor vehicle accidents. How much coverage you will be provided is governed by your specific policy, as well as New Jersey law. In order to obtain these benefits, you must file an application for benefits with your insurance company.
PIP provides the following benefits after accidents:
- All reasonable medical and hospital expenses
- Lost wages for a minimum of 52 weeks
- Reimbursement for any essential services needed (child care, housework, etc.)
- Up to $1,000 in funeral costs if death occurred
- Up to $10,000 in income continuation benefits
