Elizabeth and New Jersey Whiplash Injury Attorneys
Your insurance claims process after a rear-end collision will be different depending on whether you chose the "full tort" or "limited tort" (no-fault) type of insurance policy when you bought your auto insurance.
- If you have no-fault insurance, then you should be able to seek some form of compensation for injuries in a rear-end collision regardless of whether you caused the rear-end accident.
- If you have "full tort" auto insurance, then your ability to recover financial compensation will depend on who was at fault in the accident.
In either case, you should know that rear-end collisions — even low-impact crashes — can result in serious, long-term injuries. For this reason, it may be wise to seek assistance from an experienced personal injury attorney who will seek to ensure that the compensation you receive is maximized and fully reflects the extent of your injuries.

Fast Settlement May Not Be Wise After a Rear-End Collision
Rear-end collisions are unique among types of car accidents because they can result in very serious injuries that can take weeks, or even months, to first appear. For this reason, your attorney may advise you to wait before accepting any settlement offers. The settlement is your only opportunity to receive compensation for injuries and other losses associated with an accident, and if you accept a settlement before you understand the full extent of your injuries, you may find yourself out of luck if more significant health problems arise in the future.
