On December 13, 2010, the NJ Assembly voted 75 to 0 to approve legislation granting plaintiffs priority over PIP carriers seeking reimbursement for PIP benefits against a tortfeasor's insurance policy (the Senate passed its version of this bill 37 to 0 on October 18, 2010). This bill was proposed to reverse the New jersey Supreme Court's decision in Fernandez v. Nationwide Mutual First Insurance Company, 199 NJ 591 (2009), which found that an injured plaintiff does not have priority to the insurance proceeds of a tortfeasor when a carrier seeks to be reimbursed for PIP benefits it had paid out to that plaintiff.
