PIP Insurance in Utah
Personal Injury Protection and Car Accidents
It is easy to think that the common medical and health insurance is enough to protect us if ever we fall victim to a personal injury in Utah. There is, however, another form of insurance that can be beneficial when it comes to legal cases concerning personal injury.
Personal Injury Protection, also known as PIP, is a special form of insurance that suggests “no fault” to personal injury cases. PIP covers medical expenses as well as loss of income caused by personal injuries. Auto accidents are covered by PIP regardless of which driver is at fault. PIP can also cover other individuals involved in the accident. No fault PIP can also cover expenses due to emergency rescue & transportation, essential services, loss of income, accidental death, funeral & burial expenses, childcare cost if the individual suffering from personal injury is unable to care for their children, household help, etc. Like most insurances the amount that is covered by PIP is predetermined.
PIP can cover many expenses within personal injury cases. Because the amount of PIP is often predetermined, in some cases PIP will not cover all the expenses due in a personal injury case.
