Newark is a city in Essex County, New Jersey — the largest municipality in the state of New Jersey and the county seat for Essex County. Located at the mouth of Passaic River, Newark is a major shipping and transportation hub, being the location for Newark International Airport, one of the U.S.’s busiest airports, and Port Newark-Elizabeth, the primary container shipping terminal for the largest port on the East Coast. Originally settled by Connecticut Puritans in 1666, Newark quickly attracted other groups and was granted a Royal charter in 1713. Newark was later incorporated as a township in 1798 before being reincorporated as a city in 1836. After experiencing urban decline during the latter half of the 20th century, Newark underwent a revitalization beginning in the 1990s, leading to many corporations such as Prudential Financial, IDT Corporation, PSEG, Panasonic North America, and PSEG establishing their headquarters in the city.
Although you are not required to hire an attorney to pursue a claim with the insurance company, it is highly advisable that you have the assistance of legal counsel when asserting a damages claim. The insurance company’s goal is to pay you as little compensation as possible, and they have teams of lawyers and experts who are looking for every angle to deny you the full and fair compensation that you deserve. You stand a much better chance of receiving maximum compensation if you have an attorney in your corner aggressively and skillfully advocating for your rights and interests with the insurance companies.
If you are hit by a driver who does not have insurance, you may be able to file a claim for compensation with your own insurance company pursuant to uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage under your policy. This coverage is available when an at-fault driver does not have insurance or has insufficient insurance coverage to fully compensate you for your losses. In addition to filing an uninsured motorist claim with your insurance company, you are still entitled to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver; however, drivers who don’t have insurance typically lack the financial resources to fully compensate you for the serious injuries you suffer in a motorcycle accident.
