What is PIP & Do I Need to Carry it in New York State?

There are few things worse than sustaining an injury in an auto accident, especially due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, thousands of car accidents occur in New York City every single year, and if you have been hurt in one, you may wonder whether you can receive compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages from being unable to return to work, and more. You may have also heard of PIP, or Personal Injury Protection insurance, and wonder whether that will cover the cost of your injuries. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident attorney to learn more about PIP, auto accident claims, and how our legal team can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What is PIP and do I have to purchase it in New York State?

Personal Injury Protection is a type of no-fault car insurance that provides those injured in auto accidents with a certain amount of compensation to help cover a portion of the cost of their injury. New York motorists are required to carry at least $50,000 in PIP insurance, which should cover a portion of their medical bills and lost wages.

PIP doesn’t cover the entire cost of my injury. What should I do?

Many people find themselves in situations where they are seriously injured and PIP insurance simply does not cover the entire cost of their injury. After all, surgeries, overnights in hospitals, and the cost of rehabilitation all add up. If you find yourself in this situation, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a personal injury attorney who can help cover the entire cost of your injury via a personal injury claim. As long as we can prove that you were hurt as a direct result of another driver’s negligence, we may recover compensation to deal with the economic and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, that you’ve sustained. If you’d like to know more or you believe you have a valid personal injury claim, pick up the phone and give us a call today.
