What are the time limits for filing a claim or lawsuit after a car accident in New Jersey?

The statute of limitations in New Jersey for personal injury claims is two years from the accident date. This means you must file a lawsuit within this timeframe if you want to seek compensation for injuries. For property damage, the limit is also typically two years. However, insurance claims should be filed much sooner – check your policy for specific time limits, as they can vary. Delaying beyond these limits can result in losing your right to compensation.
