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.

You sure can!

So for example, you are driving down the street and the land moved one of its buildings into the street forcing you to drive onto the property where you had the accident and you then struck a different building on that property, and the holder fresh the land was going to do this and that the building was planning on causing your vehicle harm, but then chose to do nothing about it you could sue them.

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 instant 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 instantly 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.
What if auto insurance was canceled before your accident?

Therefore, albeit coverage is generally provided, the circumstances of a particular case may give the insurer a defense to payment.
