Pennsauken, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/02/2019 -- The Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C., New Jersey's leading personal injury lawyers, have always been on the side of their clients and have worked tirelessly to get them the justice and compensation they deserve for their injuries. The March 2019 ruling in the Haines v. Taft case by the New Jersey Supreme Court, is making it difficult for NJ residents with lower incomes to recover money for medical expenses, and the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C. wants to keep NJ motorists informed of the ruling's implications and provide passionate legal counsel for innocent clients.
The conclusion of the Haines v. Taft case is disturbing for local car insurance policy owners who can only afford the $15,000 minimum Personal Injury Protection (PIP) as it requires injured motorists to pay out-of-pocket for any medical expenses that exceed the minimum coverage. Since a car accident could happen suddenly, and there is no way to predict medical costs until the bill comes due, the ruling has the potential to leave policy-holders in catastrophic financial strain, especially considering how quickly medical bills can add up.
The Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C. has put forth their support for the S-2432 bill, sponsored by senators Nicholas P. Scutari and Nellie Pou, which fights against the Haines v. Taft ruling. The bill's objective is to permit the "recovery of uncompensated medical expenses in [a] civil action for damages arising from [an] automobile accident." It mandates coverage for medical expenses up to $250,000 regardless of PIP limits. This bill has been passed by both New Jersey Legislative Houses but has not become law as of yet.
Since S-2432 has not been signed Governor Phillip Murphy, NJ residents cannot take advantage of its mandates. If a New Jersey citizen has a car insurance policy with the $15,000 minimum PIP benefits, a car accident still has the potential to place the innocent policy-holder in crippling financial stress. Therefore, residents of New Jersey are encouraged to call Governor Murphy and tell him to sign the bill or risk being stuck with high medical bills if they're hurt in a car wreck.
The Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C.'s team of car accident attorneys are prepared to get car accident victims appropriately compensated for their medical expenses.
