What is Personal Injury Protection coverage?
Personal Injury Protection, also known as PIP insurance, helps to pay for your (or your passengers’) medical expenses from an auto accident—regardless of if the accident was your fault. PIP is required insurance in no-fault states. In this case, your state will require a minimum limit of coverage.
