If you are injured by another driver in an accident, you may assume that the other driver's insurance company will pay for damages such as lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. Unfortunately, many New Jersey drivers carry little or no liability insurance. In this case, your own uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage may fill in the gap. At Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., we work hard to help our clients who have suffered serious injuries in accidents involving the negligence of uninsured and underinsured drivers.
New Jersey law requires motorists to purchase a minimum of $15,000 per person or $30,000 per accident in liability insurance for bodily injury. However, if you have suffered a serious injury, $15,000 will not go far in compensating you for everything you have lost. Our Woodbridge personal injury lawyers have achieved settlements or jury verdicts of significant value.
Our legal team has earned a reputation for being aggressive in pursuing compensation from all potential sources of insurance, including uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage that you have selected through your own insurance company. No matter how you were injured, our Woodbridge uninsured/underinsured motorist accident attorneys offer a free initial consultation to review your insurance coverage and answer your questions. Insurance companies are required to offer you UM/UIM coverage that is at least equal to the liability insurance you carry on your own vehicle. We can determine what coverage you have selected and proceed accordingly, working towards helping you recover fair compensation.
