What is Personal Injury Protection (PIP)?

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is incredibly useful coverage when you've been involved in an accident whether you or someone else is at-fault. It is often called “no-fault” coverage because it pays out claims to the insured regardless of who is at fault in the accident.

Why should you include PIP on your insurance policy? Because it can help cover some of your lost wages and medical bills or expenses incurred whether you caused the accident or not. Liability coverage only pays for damages you cause to other people and Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage will only cover your medical expenses if you did not cause the accident.

Be wary of any insurance agent that tries to sell you a "full coverage" insurance policy. "Full coverage" is a meaningless term as far as insurance coverage goes.

Personal Injury Protection in Texas

In Texas, insurers are required to offer PIP when purchasing an insurance policy OR they must obtain an authorized signature from the policy holder rejecting the coverage. One caveat is that if there is no signed written rejection, you are covered. It is up to you to reject this coverage.

$2500 is the minimum amount of PIP coverage that auto insurance companies are required to provide. Depending on the company you choose, you can select up to $10,000 or more in PIP coverage if requested. We recommend that you obtain as much PIP coverage as your insurer will sell you due to the astronomical costs of medical care.

Unfortunately, many Texans often do not include this beneficial coverage on their policies because they are unaware that:

  1. PIP coverage is often more affordable than they think
  2. in addition to medical bills, PIP can be used for lost wages, up to 80% of lost income, and reasonable household duties
  3. rejecting this coverage could potentially cost them more if they are ever seriously injured in a car accident

Stanley & Associate's Recommendation

The attorneys at Stanley & Associates recommend that drivers include Personal Injury Protection in their auto insurance policy. Due to the rise in the cost of medical bills, we recommend that you carry $10,000 in coverage or more. Even the minimum $2500 can help with out-of-pocket expenses from your injuries.
