What exactly is PIP coverage?
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage is extremely important to have. PIP is considered a “no fault” type of coverage that will cover your medical bills and lost wages up to the amount of the policy no matter who caused the wreck. The typical PIP policy amount is $2,500, but it could be much higher. Do not confuse PIP with Medical Payments coverage because under Medical Payments coverage, the insurance carrier will be entitled to be paid back for any money they paid out on your behalf once you settle with the person who caused the wreck. Under PIP, you never have to pay back the insurance carrier.
