To Bring a Car Accident Lawsuit, No Need to Prove Serious Life Impact Standard Contained in N.J.S.A. 39:6A-8(a)

The plain language of N.J.S.A. 39:6A-8(a) does not contain a serious life impact standard. Nothing in AICRA's preamble, its legislative history, or its policy suggests that the Legislature intended the Court to write in that standard. The Appellate Division judgment is reversed and the matter is remaned for proceedings consistent with this opinion.
