So, let’s assume you have been injured in a car accident. You may feel as if you have nowhere to turn to get your most important questions answered. Car accidents can be both scary and tedious, costing you time and money that you may have never expected to spend. However, being knowledgeable about what to expect in the case of a car accident can help you significantly.
No matter what state you reside in, you will always have to prove specific elements if you wish to bring a lawsuit against another driver. This includes a duty existing, a driver breaching that duty, causation, and harm to you, the driver. All drivers sharing the roadways owe a duty of care to other drivers, keeping them from harm by watching the speed limit, driving carefully in adverse weather conditions, and obeying the traffic signals they see along the way. If eyewitness testimony, damages, or videos show that the duty was breached, then you will typically be able to build a case against another party with your evidence on hand. This, in turn, will help you receive the damages (or compensation) that you deserve.
New Jersey is actually a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. You may ask, how will this benefit me? No-fault liability means that the car accident will be to blame on one person and one person only. So, if another driver caused your car accident and there is solid evidence of such, the damages will be owed by the other driver. Insurance companies will usually never give you a problem in these specific situations. Rather, you will find that the driver will be found responsible and settlement will happen immediately.
