All drivers are required to carry car insurance that provides certain minimum coverage in New Jersey. This is because New Jersey is a “no-fault” state, meaning that drivers make a claim with their own insurance company before pursuing any other means of getting compensation.

Plainfield, originally Plainfield Township, was originally a part of Essex County, New Jersey. In 1857, it became a part of the newly formed Union County—which today is nicknamed “The Queen City”. Plainfield has one of the higher population densities in Union County, with about 8,270 residents per square mile. Plainfield’s total landmass is only about 6.023 square miles.
Although Plainfield is located close to New York City, it has historically had a strong industrial presence of its own, providing employment to area residents. Today, Plainfield is undergoing a revitalization effort as part of the Urban Enterprise Zone program developed by the New Jersey legislature.
While there is a presumption that rear-end car accidents are caused by the car in the rear, that presumption can be overcome with evidence. While some rear-end car accidents are caused by tailgating or the rear driver’s failure to pay attention to the road, others are not so simple. Rear-end accidents can be caused by the driver in front stopping suddenly or unexpectedly—or even by some type of malfunction in the vehicle itself. Our lawyers are here to evaluate the facts and identify the cause, even if you were the driver in the rear.
It never hurts to consult a lawyer about your rights. Some signs that you should speak with a lawyer include:
– Your insurance company is giving you a difficult time about your claim, whether by delaying payment or requesting additional information,
– Your insurance coverage is insufficient to cover your medical bills and cost of living while you are out of work,
– Your injuries are serious, and you are facing a long recovery period,
– Your injuries may be permanent and impact your life forever.
Your first meeting with our lawyers is completely free. The consultation allows you to tell us what happened so that we can help you determine whether you have a case for compensation. We can help you by negotiating with your insurance company and understanding whether you might have a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company—or even in the courtroom.
