No-Fault Auto Insurance in New Jersey
The no-fault insurance system instituted in 1972 was very different from the current system in New Jersey. The earlier system of no-fault insurance offered unrestricted medical treatments and unlimited coverage no matter who caused the accident. Other benefits included income continuation, funds for funeral services and other expenses, as needed. The injured person could file a lawsuit or claim if their medical expenses exceeded $200.
The benefits that the car accident victim received were referred to as PIP benefits, or personal injury protection. In exchange for receiving PIP benefits, no lawsuit could be filed for medical costs and basic wages that were paid by PIP. A personal injury lawsuit only could be filed for pain and suffering and unreimbursed lost wages.
