Who will pay for my medical treatment if I was a pedestrian hit by a car in New Jersey?

Bridgeway Legal Funding |

New Jersey is known as a no-fault car insurance State.   Therefore if you are in an accident as a pedestrian and/or driver and passenger, your own insurance policy pays for your medical expenses and lost wages.  A standard New Jersey policy has insurance coverage limits that start as low as $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. There is also coverage as low as $15,000 per person in Personal Injury Protection.  Personal Injury Protection is coverage provided to help pay for your medical bills.   Your own insurance will help pay for your medical treatment.


What if I get hit by a car as a pedestrian in the State of New Jersey but I don’t own a car? Who Pays?
