Helping With Personal Injury Protection Claims

While you recover from your car accident and wait for the other driver's insurance to pay your claim, you are undoubtedly concerned about the things you are no longer able to do. You cannot mow your grass. You are not able to do your own laundry. Perhaps it is impossible to even take your dog for a walk. Most urgently, you cannot pay all those medical bills from your accident injuries.

This is where your insurance policy's personal injury protection kicks in. At The Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C., we want you to understand how your PIP coverage works and how we can help you obtain it. If we are handling your personal injury case against the other driver, we will advise you concerning your PIP claim at no charge.

What Is PIP And What Does It Cover?

Texas law requires insurance companies to include personal injury protection in all policies. Unless you signed a paper opting out of PIP coverage when you purchased your auto insurance, you probably have at least $2,500 worth of coverage, hopefully more. PIP is a valuable part of your insurance because payment of benefits is not based on fault, so you do not have to wait for investigations, police reports or court decisions to request your benefits.

Unlike health insurance, which will cover medical bills only, PIP insurance may help you make up for other costs related to your accident, for example:

  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Household services
  • Child care
  • Funeral expenses

Of course, how much of these expenses PIP covers depends on how much you carry. When paying for medical care, your PIP may not go very far, so exploring every avenue to obtain compensation is what our law firm will do for you.

Why Do I Need A Lawyer If I Have PIP?

PIP does not cover all of your losses from an accident. For example, PIP pays nothing for pain and suffering. If you have suffered a serious injury, your PIP benefits alone will not go far in paying for your damages. Since 1979, attorney Jay Doyle has helped Austin accident victims recover the full damages they are due from the insurance company of the at-fault driver.

Jay Doyle will fully investigate your accident, negotiate for a fair settlement and take your case to court if necessary.
