What are Personal Injury Protection benefits?
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits, also known as “no-fault benefits”, are available to pay for you medical expenses up to the amount of the PIP limit, which is usually $10,000. These medical benefits are available regardless of fault and are paid by your own insurance company if you are operating a vehicle at the time of the accident. Some PIP policies provide additional medical expense coverage and/or benefits for lost wages.
Pedestrians are entitled to the same benefits from the insurance coverage of the vehicle that made contact with them, again regardless of fault.
These benefits are paid regardless of who is at fault in the accident and these PIP benefits usually come from your own insurance company unless you are a pedestrian.
