Not every state has an identical car insurance policy to Massachusetts. As to most car accidents, it is important to pursue additional benefits under our Massachusetts car insurance policy known as Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Benefits. These benefits include payment of medical bills incurred, for the payment of lost wages and for the payment of out-of-pocket expenses. Depending upon issues such as the type of health insurance, if any, a car accident victim has, this will determine the amount of money, received from Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Benefits coverage, which is to be used for medical bills, lost wages or out-of-pocket expenses.
