Most Auto insurance plans offer coverage called Personal Injury Protection (PIP) which covers medical costs related to auto accidents. Most insurance companies include this as part of your plan and a sum of $10,000- $20,000 can be utilized for visits to ER, your Doctor’s office, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic care and Acupuncture. This benefit is yours if you are injured in an accident, whether the accident was your fault, or not. Most people do not know that their personal health insurance will not cover treatment related to the accident, until they have first utilized their PIP coverage and exhausted the funds. To access your PIP after an accident, you must file a claim with your auto insurance company. Sometimes, insurance companies try to keep their costs to a minimum, so you may need to hire an attorney to advocate for you if they deny or limit your PIP coverage.
