Insurance Policy

Insurance policies come in various types, offering coverage for different aspects of life, property, and health. These policies play a significant role in personal injury cases by providing financial protection to individuals in the event of accidents, injuries, or damages. A personal injury lawyer at Friedland & Associates can help you navigate the complexities of insurance policies and pursue compensation from your own insurance company or the negligent party's insurance company if you've suffered severe injuries and were involved in an accident in a no-fault state.

How Does PIP Insurance Work in a No-Fault State?

In a no-fault state, insurance plays an important role in compensating accident victims for their damages. The concept of no-fault insurance means that regardless of who caused the accident, each party’s own insurance company is responsible for covering certain expenses, up to a specified limit.

Below, you’ll find how insurance can cover accident victims’ damages in a no-fault state:

Personal injury protection coverage

No-fault states typically mandate drivers to carry PIP coverage as part of their auto insurance policy. PIP coverage is designed to swiftly provide payment for medical expenses and financial losses, regardless of fault. It includes medical bills, lost wages, and other specified costs.

Swift compensation

PIP coverage ensures accident victims promptly receive compensation for immediate expenses, without the need to determine fault or engage in prolonged legal battles.

Economic damages

PIP coverage primarily reimburses economic damages, encompassing medical bills, hospital fees, rehabilitation expenses, and lost income. These are quantifiable monetary losses.

Non-economic damages

Although PIP primarily focuses on economic damages, in certain cases, accident victims may be able to pursue non-economic damages like pain and suffering or emotional distress if their injuries meet specific criteria outlined by the state.

Coverage limits

PIP coverage comes with limits. Once these limits are exhausted, individuals might need to explore other avenues to seek additional compensation. Moreover, PIP might not cover all types of damages, particularly if they exceed the policy limits or fall outside the scope of coverage.

Optional coverages

Individuals in no-fault states have the option to purchase supplementary insurance coverages beyond PIP, such as medical payments coverage or uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. These extra options offer added protection and compensation in more serious accidents.

Liability claims

If damages surpass PIP coverage limits or meet specific criteria, individuals may have the option to file a liability claim against the at-fault party. This involves establishing negligence or fault on the part of the other driver.
