About this Episode

In this episode, “Understanding Verbal Threshold in New Jersey," Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, discusses the right to sue after being injured in a motor vehicle accident and how that right can be complicated by a New Jersey law referred to as the “verbal threshold.” This podcast is audio taken from a LIVE webinar offered February 10, 2020.

Major will discuss the following:

  • What is New Jersey's Limitation Lawsuit option?
  • How the Limitation affects our reimbursement and subrogation rights.
  • When the verbal threshold applies.
  • How recent case decisions will impact the practice in 2020.
