What You Need to Know About PIP in New York State

There are few things worse than sustaining an injury in an auto accident. Unfortunately, for some, these injuries can affect their lives for years down the road, if not permanently. That said, if you were recently hurt in an auto accident, you’re most likely wondering what benefits you may receive from Personal Injury Protection (PIP). Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident attorney to learn more about PIP and how our legal team can help you recover the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What is PIP?

PIP is a form of no-fault auto insurance that allows those who’ve been hurt in auto accidents to recover compensation for their medical bills and a portion of their lost wages. In New York, motorists are responsible for carrying at least $50,000 in PIP.

What happens if PIP doesn’t cover all the damages I’ve sustained?

Unfortunately, at times, an auto accident can be so severe that Personal Injury Protection coverage simply doesn’t cover the entire cost of an injury sustained in an auto accident. In this case, it is your duty to retain the services of a competent Manhattan car accident attorney who can analyze the circumstances of your accident, and, if he or she determines that another party is at fault, your attorney will file a personal injury claim on your behalf in an effort to recover the full compensation to which you are entitled. Though there is a cap on recovery through PIP, there is no cap on recoverable damages in a personal injury claim.

How do I win a personal injury claim?

To win a personal injury claim, you and your Manhattan car accident attorney will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most helpful types of evidence when it comes to personal injury claims in Manhattan can include pictures of the accident or its aftermath, surveillance footage of the accident as it happened, witness testimony corroborating your claim, medical documentation regarding the origin and extent of your injuries, and more. Ensure you bring your claim within three years of the date your accident occurred, as this is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State.
