If you have health insurance will your PIP pay for an injury in an auto accident?
In Florida, PIP will pay 80% of the bills till a total of $Ten,000 is reached. .
After the $Ten,000 limit, the health insurance will kick in as if that was the primary insurance. .
So what about the 20% before the $Ten,000. Send the remaining balance bills to your health insurance or the provider if the provider belongs to the health insurance list. Most of the health insurance companies will pay nothing of the 20% as the auto PIP will have paid several fold the allowable amount that the helath insurance pays had it not been as a result of an auto accident. They will tell the provider that no extra payment is due. So you will not pay a dime from your pocket till you reach the $Ten,000 limit. .
But if you are going to a out-of-network provider, I do not know. So when you go to ER or a doctor, tell them you only want to see your health insurance providers. They may not do so but insist..
Beaware of even network providers attempting to ask you to pay the balance if your health insurance company does not pay anything. They become greedy like anyone else..
The sun is setting on reqd PIP in Florida. It is a boon for people who have a insurance as they will not go thru the hassles that providers put you thru for the balance of the PIP. On PIP, charges are 3-4 times what is permitted by health insurance companies. So hospitals and doctors make a killing. With PIP gone in Fall, now the lawyers will make a killing by suing for injuries. And if you are not insured, you are in trouble even if the accident was not your fault. PIP was a good idea, but when hospitals and doctors got greedy, it became to be known as a scam. .
With our mentality of making money in the brief run, this is what the consumer gets. He is shafted no matter what, just getting shafted by different people. Do you want to be shafted by the medical community or the lawyers. Take your pick.

Does the liability coverage on your auto insurance cover you against a liability exposure if you are at fault in an accident and a passenger in your car is killed in the accident?
It should, up to the amount of the policy. It is possible that your liability could exceed that amount, particularly if you had only “legal minimum”. And I suppose there could be some situations spelled out in your policy, maybe DUI or commission of a crime, that might create an exception. There may also be an issue if the passenger is a member of your household. #Two answ: Better read your insurance policy. Most liability insurance covers ONLY the person and property of another vehicle and not your own ESPECIALLY if you are at fault. .
In the UK – the reaction is plain. Your insurance will cover you for all injuries including a fatality to a passenger in your car. If there was a deliberate act your motor insurer may wish to recoup any compensation payment for the fatality. See the related link entitled “car accidents caused by family members” to see how your insurer might investigate if suspicious circumstances are suspected due to a family relationship.

If it is the windscreen which stops the passenger’s forward motility, the influence usually cracks the windscreen (and some of the passenger’s bones) and the passenger may proceed their forward mobility by going through the glass.

In MA how much will your auto insurance increase after an at fault accident?
It depends upon State law and the way in which the insurer has “filed rates” with the regulator. That is, some states have prohibitions against insurers enhancing rates when a claim does not exceed a stated amount, even if the insured was at fault for the collision. I cannot comment on Mass. law in that regard; your insurance agent would have that information. Naturally, if a claim would have an adverse influence upon your rate, you can choose to pay the claim without the involvement of the insurer. This would be a business decision for you to make. Among the factors to consider are the amount of the claim, whether it is for property harm only or bodily injury damages, the amount, if any, of the instantaneous rate increase, and for how long the higher rate would be applied/collected. The premium that you pay is a function of the rate. The rate is a dollar amount per $100 worth of insurance. Therefore the premium is calculated by multiplying the amount of coverage that you have (in $100 increments) by the rate. If the claim is for bodily injury, where the amount of damages cannot be instantaneously determined, you may wish to have the insurer treat it regardless of the influence upon the insurance premium that you pay in the future. This is because your liability insurance not only pays sums for which you may be found liable, but it also provides a defense if you are sued. That is, it pays defense counsel to defend you and related court costs. In all events, if you are going to have the insurer treat the claim for you, it is significant that you report the claim to it promptly and cooperate in all respects with its investigation of the claim.

Most states require auto owners to maintain “no-fault” coverage; it is sometimes referred to as “Private Injury Protection”.

No-fault coverage pays a percentage of the medical expenses and lost wages sustained by an injured part in an auto collision, and benefits are payable irrespective of fault. That is, your own coverage pays benefits even if you caused the collision. Depending upon the state in which the policy is issues, a deductible of some amount may be permitted. A deductible is the amount which the insured is responsible for paying before insurance benefits are triggered. A similar coverage, which pays over and above no-fault is called “medical payments” coverage. An extra premium is charged for this because it is an optional coverage. It also is a first-party coverage which pays irrespective of fault.

What happens if medical expenses exceed auto insurance coverage after an auto accident?
1. Most states have a requirement that a registrant of an auto maintain “private injury protection” (PIP) coverage (altho the name may be different). This is the essence of so-called no-fault auto insurance. Essentially, it pays a percentage of the insured’s own medical bills and lost wages, up to a maximum amount, arising from an auto collision. It pays those expenses irrespective of fault for the collision. Two. Most insurers also suggest a Medical Payments coverage. This is often an optional coverage. It pays an extra amount toward medical expenses , and often coordinates with the PIP coverage. Therefore, if the PIP coverage pays 80% of the medical bills, up to the policy thresholds, the medical payments coverage will pay the remaining 20% up to its policy boundaries. Three. If medical expenses exceed #1 and #Two, one’s major medical insurance is triggered. The auto insurance is “primary” in the sense that its benefits have to be tired before major medical insurance is called upon to pay. This is because auto insurance is required by state “financial responsibility laws” and for the further reason that it and the major medical insurance contain “coordination of benefits” provisions making the auto insurance primary. Four. If medical expenses still exceed the total available auto insurance and major medical insurance (including, if there is no major medical insurance), the injured party/insured is personally responsible for unpaid amounts. In this situation, the health care provider frequently is willing to work out payment arrangements. Alternatively, the unpaid amounts may be discharged in bankruptcy, but this is a very drastic step and should be avoided if at all possible.
