Woodbridge, NJ Uninsured Car Accident Lawyer

Protecting You From Uninsured & Underinsured Drivers

If you are injured by another driver in a car 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.

Keep in mind, you may have a “limited right to sue” depending on the specifics of your insurance policy. By choosing this lawsuit option, you agree not to sue the person who caused a motor vehicle accident for your pain and suffering unless you sustain certain permanent injuries.

The permanent injuries include:

  • Loss of body part
  • Significant disfigurement or scarring
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Displaced fracture
  • Permanent injury
  • Death

At Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., we can help you make a claim and, if necessary, handle your case as it proceeds to either arbitration or to court as you seek to force your insurance provider to pay you the full amount of compensation the law allows.

New Jersey Law on Car Insurance

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 lawyers have achieved settlements or jury verdicts of significant value.

We work with clients who have been involved in the following types of accidents with uninsured and underinsured drivers:
