Although many automobile accidents cause only minor damage to property, some may involve injury to the drivers or passengers involved. If the accident was caused by negligent actions on the part of one of the drivers, he or she may be held liable for injuries sustained by the other individuals. Some auto insurance policies offer personal injury protection (PIP) to cover costs associated with auto accident injuries to others.
Drivers who elect to add personal injury protection to their auto insurance coverage can help cover claims against them in the event of an accident.

Personal injury protection coverage may include:
Auto insurance policies that include personal injury protection may cover expenses not listed above, depending on the policy type and the rules of the specific state. PIP coverage is sometimes referred to as “no-fault” coverage and may pay out regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Since PIP coverage may be “no-fault” protection, the insured driver’s premiums may not raise after a PIP claim has been made.
Certain states have made PIP coverage mandatory for drivers in the area, so it is essential that you review the laws in your state to make sure you have adequate insurance coverage.
