After an accident, it is important for any driver or passenger to seek medical attention immediately. Injuries from a car accident are not always apparent right after the accident and can show up days or weeks later. Drivers who have PIP insurance will be able to cover the medical treatments needed for themselves and any passengers in their vehicle. This way, no one in the vehicle needs to worry about how they’re going to cover the treatments they need.
At the emergency room or physician’s office, the injured person will need to fill out paperwork stating they were in a car accident. This paperwork is used by the doctor to determine who to bill for the costs. If the driver of the vehicle had PIP insurance, their auto insurance company will receive the bill for the treatments and will cover as much as possible. The patient will need to cover any remaining amount on their own.
