What does Personal Injury Protection Insurance cover?

Texas personal injury protection (PIP) is coverage that must be offered to you by your auto insurance company. This coverage can be rejected if you so wish. Personal Injury Protection provides extra coverage regarding medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Personal Injury Protection is referred to as a “no-fault” coverage meaning the client should be covered regardless of whether they caused the accident or not.  Contact our office with any questions regarding a car accident or personal injury protection claim!
