What Is the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in New Jersey?

So normally in New Jersey, the Statute of Limitations is two years. And you better be on top of the two years because it’s two years from the date of the accident. Now, there are other statutes of limitations for different entities. But for the most part, really what you want to know is that in New Jersey, if you were injured as a result of a slip and fall or car accident, the majority of the time that statute of limitations is two years, which gives you two years from the date of the injury to file your lawsuit. So that’s something you want to be on guard about.

But normally, within those two years, if you truly have a personal injury case, your case is already in the works and already in the mix, and we’re already getting your medical records together, and we’re already getting the case ready to file suit. So a lot of times, you know, my firm won’t file suit immediately because you’re going to the doctor and you’re treating. And we’re going to wait to see what happens after your treatment, and after we get all your records and how do we evaluate your case. And then at that point, we’ll determine if we can settle the case, if we can, great. If not, we have to go to trial, then we put the case in suit, and your case is ready to go to trial. So our case will be ready. If we put this case in suit, if we file suit, at that point, we’re ready to rock and roll out a trial.
