NJ No-Fault Insurance

NJ law mandates drivers to obtain a basic auto insurance policy – at the very least. Because the state adheres to a ‘no fault’ practice in regard to vehicle collisions, any basic policyholder who suffers an injury in relation to a collision initially submits a claim to his or her auto insurance policy.  

Disclaimer: If a NJ driver chooses to purchase traditional auto insurance instead of the basic policy, he or she can bring a liability claim against the other driver if there are damages resulting from a crash.

The NJ basic auto insurance does not allow general lawsuits. Exceptions to this rule are when the crash causes:

  • Dismemberment

  • Major physical disfigurement

  • Substantial scarring

  • Dislocated fractures

  • Miscarriage

  • Permanent injury
