When you are hurt in a car accident that is caused by another person or entity’s negligent actions, you can seek to recover compensation for your injuries and other losses by filing a personal injury claim in New Jersey’s civil courts. Providing negligence meets the legal standard, you may receive compensation for any of the following losses:
The purpose of compensatory damages is to compensate the injured party for the harm that they endured in the accident. Compensatory damages are not intended to punish the at-fault party.
After a car accident, most injured victims may falsely assume that the issue of who is responsible for the accident is perfectly clear. But negligence must be proven in a car accident and in many cases, the driver that is responsible for the accident will claim that the injured person is at least somewhat at fault. An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate the merits of your car accident case to determine whether your claim satisfies the legal standard of negligence.
When more than one party is responsible for a car accident, New Jersey’s “modified comparative fault” rules apply. Under these laws, the compensation that the injured person may recover is reduced by a level that reflects their portion of the blame for the accident. So if the level of fault is 10 percent, the damage award will be reduced by 10 percent. New Jersey does not allow compensation to be recovered when the injured person is more than 50 percent responsible for their accident.
When you or a loved one has been hurt in a car accident, you deserve to recover the maximum compensation for your injuries. But doing so is rarely a straightforward process; the at-fault party will likely argue that you share some level of blame for the accident and the insurance company may question the level of injuries you claim to have endured.

While you can accept the initial settlement offer from the other driver’s insurance company, it is not in your best interests. Initial settlement offers typically fall far below the level of compensation that you are entitled to receive for your accident injuries and other losses. For the best possible outcome in your case, consult with an experienced car accident attorney before accepting any offers.
