What is the statute of limitations for property damage in New Jersey ?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Newark, NJ

Hi,

My car was regularly parked on the street, and another car hit it and run away. This happened in New Jersey in 2010. Can I still sue the driver of the car who hit my car for property damage?
Thank you

    Answered . Assuming you (a) know who the other driver was, (b) can find the other driver, (c) prove the other driver was the responsible party, and (d) prove your car was damaged (and in what amount), you will not be barred from attempting to recover, at least not by the statute of limitations.

    Good luck
