What Is PIP Insurance?

What is PIP car insurance?

Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, also known as no-fault insurance, provides coverage for you — and those insured on your policy — for medical expenses and other damages resulting from a motor vehicle accident regardless of who is at fault. Some states like Florida require PIP insured. However, other states like Georgia do not require PIP coverage.

 

In an ideal world, your injury would receive swift and considerate action from the insurance company. However, the majority of car accident claims face issues. The sad truth is that insurance companies are businesses that want to protect their bottom line. Many of them benefit from giving you the runaround or dragging their feet on your claim.

 

No one should have to jump through hoops after being in a car crash.

 

If you — or a loved one — have been involved in a car accident, you may be wondering what to do next. Hiring an attorney who understands personal injury protection (PIP) can help you recover what you’re owed.

Is PIP Insurance Required?

PIP insurance requirements vary by state. Depending on the state where you live, PIP insurance may be a required add-on or it may not be available at all.

What Does PIP Insurance Cover?

PIP insurance provides up to $10,000 in funds for policyholders in Florida. While these funds can help cover the cost of prescriptions, surgical treatments, and ambulance fees, they can also refund your lost wages, home care, pet care, or funeral costs. This sum can account for up to 80% of medical costs and 60% of your lost wages. This means if your medical bills total $8,000, your PIP coverage will provide $6,000 toward your recovery.

 

Even if your total damages are under $10,000, you can still go after the at-fault driver for any bills or expenses not covered by your PIP. This means you may be able to sue the negligent party for additional compensation.

How to File a PIP Claim

You need to get started on your claim as soon as possible. Follow these steps to file a PIP claim after getting in touch with a personal injury protection lawyer:

Getting the insurance company to do the right thing requires quick action as there is a limited window for qualifying for PIP coverage. Failure to act may cause you to forfeit your right to seek compensation.
