Yes. New Jersey follows the modified comparative negligence rule. This means that an injured accident victim can still recover compensation even if he or she was partially responsible for causing the accident and/or his or her injuries, so long as he or she does not bear the majority of the fault. An injured plaintiff partially at fault for an accident will have his or her financial recovery reduced to reflect his or her share of fault — for example, if you incurred $100,000 in damages from an accident you were 20 percent at fault for, your recovery will be reduced by $20,000 to reflect your share of fault.
Under New Jersey’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims, you generally have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit in court. This time limit may be extended if you do not initially realize that you have been injured (such as an internal injury or an illness that doesn’t immediately show symptoms) or if you do not know who may have been responsible for your injury. If you fail to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires in your case, the court will almost certainly permanently dismiss your lawsuit.
