What is PIP?
PIP is an acronym that stands for Personal Injury Protection benefits. It is designed to provide medical payment benefits or coverage for you to go towards payment of your medical bills. This is while you are waiting for your personal injury case to settle against the other side. Basically, it is a tool and a way to pay your medical bills while your other case is pending. Certainly, you do not want medical bills to go into collections. And you want to have that peace of mind that it is done.
PIP does oftentimes take a little bit of time to get that overall case done with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. The personal injury attorneys at Dickerson Oxton always encourage clients that we want to walk you through that process of obtaining every benefit that you can out of your own insurance policy. And PIP is certainly one of those.
PIP, in particular, is specific to Kansas. Every car insurance policy in Kansas requires that a certain PIP amount be given. Therefore, it definitely something that you want to pursue and we can help you do that.
