Important Things to Know About Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

If you do not seek medical treatment within fourteen days of the accident, PIP will not cover any of your medical bills.  If you have suffered an “emergency medical condition,” PIP will pay for 80% of your reasonable, necessary and related medical expenses and 60% of your related lost wages up to $10,000.00. If you have not suffered an emergency medical condition, your PIP benefits are capped at $2,500.

An emergency medical condition is defined as a medical condition that requires immediate medical attention and could reasonably be expected to result in serious jeopardy to the patient’s health. We can help you complete all necessary paperwork so that you receive the full PIP benefits to which you are entitled following an accident.

Our investigation of your claim includes:

• Reviewing medical records from treatment you received after the crash;

• Reviewing police reports, crime scene reports and photographs of the scene;

• Interviewing witnesses;

• Using traffic camera footage, if available;

• Investigating the history of the other driver;

• Obtaining a recording of the 911 call;

• Examining photos of your car before and after the accident;

• Reviewing cell phone records; and

• Reviewing specific information and history on the vehicles involved.

We use this information to create a claim which shows how the other driver caused the accident and is responsible for your losses. Unfortunately, insurance companies avoid paying fair compensation and, in many cases, will offer an amount that does not fully cover your losses.  This is why it is important to have an attorney gather the evidence and guide you along the way.  If negotiations are unsuccessful, your attorney will meet with you and determine whether it is advisable to file a lawsuit against the insurance company and other parties involved in the crash,
