New Jersey is a “No-fault insurance” State which means that any person involved in a crash must make a claim with their own motor vehicle insurance company. In the case with a single vehicle crash, the person operating the motor vehicle will be responsible for any injuries or damage.
Anyone who is injured by the crash, whether it is you, a passenger, a pedestrian, or bicyclist, will be able to file a personal injury claim and seek monetary recovery through the driver’s car insurance policy. If the injured party can establish in a legal claim that the driver was negligent, careless, or at fault, the injured party can recover damages against the driver and insurance company.
