In New Jersey, Where Can a Personal Injury Case be Filed?


A: If the parties are from different states, the case can be filed in either New Jersey state or Federal court.  If the case involves a New Jersey accident and a New Jersey defendant, the case can be filed in the county where the defendant lives or regularly does business, the county where the injured plaintiff lives, or the county where the accident happened.  This is a more liberal rule than many states, including Pennsylvania, because it allows the case to be filed in the county where the accident victim lives, regardless of where the accident happened or where the defendant lives.
