PIP Benefits for Injured Pedestrians and Bicyclists

If you were struck by a car while walking, jogging or riding your bike, you likely have access to personal injury protection (PIP) benefits.

Many people don't realize that they have a right to PIP after a pedestrian or bicycle accident. They think that because they weren't driving at the time of the accident, their car insurance won't cover them. This is not true! Even if you don't have car insurance at all, the PIP insurance of the driver who hit you can cover your damages.

Your Insurance Company's Interests are not Always Aligned With Yours

It is very important to contact our personal injury lawyers before contacting the insurance companies. We want to help you navigate this process.

Even your own insurance company is not necessarily on your side. Like any business, it is concerned about its bottom line. This means it is usually seeking ways to limit how much it has to pay — regardless of how much you actually deserve. It is in your best interest to call an experienced attorney and learn about your rights.
