    The short answer to your question is that you are still within your statute of limitations of 2 years for a motor vehicle accident in NJ so you still have time to pursue your potential case. A person such as yourself has the right to hire new counsel if he wishes. Move quickly to retain new counsel, if you wish, in order to preserve your rights. Good luck.

    I agree with my colleagues. You really need to consult a lawyer to know your rights. First, you need to evaluate a personal injury claim. This requires you to notify your auto insurer so it properly pays you benefits you have paid for, like payment of your Medical Expense Benefits and Income Continuation Benefits. Second, depending on whether you were injured while in the course of your employment (like driving to a client), you may have a workers compensation claim. Depending on this answer,...

    Yes. First, submit the claim for all damages sustained to both your homeowner's insurance carrier and your neighbor's homeowner's insurance carrier. Next, see if he/she will give you the information voluntarily, and if not, let your homeowner's carrier work for you and get that information as it will likely require this information for purposes of it's seeking to subrogate (get paid back from the responsible party) the money it lays out on this claim to you. You ultimately have a...

    Thank you for your inquiry. FIrst, you most likely have a claim for compensation under your own auto policy for uninsured motorist benefits coverage, but your insurance coverages have to be reviewed. Second, your insurance coverages also have to be reviewed to determine which one (health verses auto) is primary with regard to payment. Your doctors should be billing both, as once health declines it, auto is responsible to pay it under the PIP benefits you pay for and they can fight with your...

    First, sorry to hear your daughter was involved in an accident. Second, was she injured? Third, you potentially identify a claim against not only the driver who struck your daughter in the rear, but also an uninsured motorist claim under your own policy for the role the unknown, phantom vehicle that fled played in this. I strongly suggest you contact a personal injury lawyer who concentrates in car accidents, as you are in need of legal advice so your daughter understands her options and...

    Thank you for your inquiry. Your friend does have a two year statute of limitations to formally file a Claim Petition. This will require a lawyer, in my opinion. He should seek counsel immediately to protect his rights. There may also be a potential third party case against any non-employer (including co-employees) who may have been involved if this involves some type of accident. Please feel free to look up my profile on Avvo. -Andrew Blumer, Esq.

    I would add that you should not talk to the other party or the dog owner and business insurance carriers. Also, must preserve evidence. Take pictures showing your visible injuries to document the appearance of any scarring wound. It is very important to discuss everything you are feeling with an aggressive and seasoned trial attorney to help evaluate the extent of your injuries since there may be nerve damage to the damaged area and psychological trauma. Also need clarity on whether other body...
