New Jersey No-Fault And Personal Injury Protection Laws
New Jersey is a ‘No-Fault’ state in terms of non-commercial auto accidents. According to New
Jersey Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Laws, PIP pays for an accident victims medical,
rehabilitative and living expenses after suffering an injury in a non-commercial vehicle auto
accident or motorcycle accident in New Jersey. PIP coverage comes into effect no matter who
was at-fault in the accident. New Jersey has two unique options for how PIP operates in the
state: health insurance as the primary medical coverage, and lawsuit restrictions.
New Jersey UMUIM Laws
New Jersey has underinsured motorist laws in place to compensate auto accident victims who
are involved in car accidents with drivers who have inadequate insurance to pay for the resulting
damage. Standard underinsured motorist coverage provides a driver with compensation for
medical treatment and property repair when the following situations arise:
1. A driver who did not have sufficient liability insurance at the time of the accident to
cover all related damage
2. An at-fault driver who had insurance at the time of the accident, but her insurance
agency refuses to provide coverage for any damages
By contrast, New Jersey uninsured motorist coverage typically compensates accident victims for
medical expenses and loss wages as a result of being injured in a car accident with an
uninsured driver. For instance, a motorist suffering injuries due to a hit-and-run accident can file
a claim against his own insurance carrier to be compensated for medical related expenses in
seeking care to treat his injury. Basically, uninsured motorist coverage is the term used when a
driver insures himself against someone who has no insurance coverage at all.
