ESSEX COUNTY - CONSUMER DEBT

Representation in Law Division case

TB was in a car accident in June 2015 in which the passengers in the car in front of her slammed on the brakes, causing TB to hit their car.  The police declined to come to the scene of the accident because there were no injuries and no airbags deployed.  Two years later, the passengers filed a lawsuit in the Law Division against TB and her insurance company, claiming that they had sustained severe and grievous personal injuries.  TB filed a pro se answer and noted, as an affirmative defense (on the advice of an attorney she met with at a VLJ clinic), that the complaint was filed after the two-year statute of limitations had expired.  TB is seeking an attorney who could represent her in the lawsuit and possibly file a motion for summary judgment.
