Personal Injury Protection Insurance also known as PIP is an extension of the automobile insurance that covers medical expenses in case of an accident. It is mandatory to have PIP insurance coverage in the state of New York. Personal Injury Protection Insurance pays for medical expenses, loss of wages and funeral expenses, during and after accidents. It can also be used to cover emotional distress, pain & suffering, and trauma due to a mental injury.
PIP is a no-fault insurance coverage. Even if the claimant of the PIP benefit is at fault for the accident, the individual can receive the coverage benefits. If an auto accident occurs in New York, the PIP or no-fault insurance policy pays medical expenses and lost earnings up to a max of $50,000 to the policyholder, his/her passengers and the pedestrians. If there is negligence on part of the driver, then the plaintiff can seek damages for pain and trauma due to serious injuries.
Insurance companies may delay the settlement processes and in some cases, settling with the insured might be a better option if there is reasonable offer of settlement from the insurance company. A trial might result in a better judgment in favor of the plaintiff, but considering the years of litigation involved, our expert personal injury lawyers can guide you through the best options available under the circumstances.
