Compensable Damages That Our Piscataway Car Accident Lawyers Can Help You Pursue
Different damages are covered by different insurance policies. For example, personal injury protection, or PIP, can be used for medical expenses, whereas liability coverage, which is also required by law, cannot be used for medical expenses.
We will help you understand which policies apply to which damages. We will also help you pursue compensation for the personal injuries and damages most commonly seen in car accident cases, such as:
- Broken bones
- Head, neck, and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Cuts, bruises, burns, and scars
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
If you lost income because of an inability to work, suffered vehicle damage, or have funeral or burial expenses to pay, we will help you determine which of these losses you may be able to include in your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Piscataway, NJ
You can use a variety of evidence to substantiate your claims for compensation, including the official police report of the accident, video footage from dash cams or surveillance cameras that show how the accident unfolded, eyewitness statements, and vehicle black box data. You can also obtain the test results of drivers involved in the accident to prove drug, alcohol, or medicine consumption by an at-fault driver, as well as driving logs or cell phone data from an at-fault driver to show that he or she was guilty of drowsy or distracted driving.
For lawsuits, you must file your claim within the statutes of limitations, which for personal injury cases in New Jersey is two years from when the accident that caused your injuries occurred. If you are only filing a personal injury claim with your insurer, you are encouraged to file as quickly as you can. The standard filing window for claims with your insurer is between 30 and 60 days, although you should check the fine print of your policies to be sure as this time frame varies from insurer to insurer.
The answer to this depends on the type of vehicle you drive, your driving history, and how much you drive. Medical treatment costs are usually the largest cost category for car accidents, so you may choose to increase your PIP minimums to cover higher medical treatment expenses if you are ever involved in an accident that leads to bodily injury to you or others. You can also purchase rideshare coverage, passenger coverage, collision coverage, and/or comprehensive coverage to cover you in different accident scenarios.
