Personal Injury Protection
It covers medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs for the policyholder and passengers in the event of a car accident.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a type of car insurance that provides financial coverage for medical expenses and lost wages if you are injured in a car accident. It is also known as \”no-fault\” insurance because it pays out benefits regardless of who caused the accident. PIP coverage typically includes medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with an injury, such as rehabilitation and funeral expenses.
Why do you need PIP?
Whether or not you need PIP coverage depends on the laws of the state you live in and the type of insurance coverage you currently have. In some states, PIP coverage is mandatory and must be included in all car insurance policies. In other states, it is optional and can be added to a policy at the discretion of the insured.
