Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage
In New Jersey, when you purchase auto insurance you are given an option to buy personal injury protection, better known as PIP coverage. This means is if you get into an auto accident, PIP will cover any expenses related to the injuries that you had sustained. These expenses could include any medical bills that your health insurance does not cover. However, if you don’t have PIP coverage, your medical bills may not be covered if you are in an accident while a passenger on a jitney bus. Since jitney buses are considered commercial vehicles, they are not required to carry PIP coverage. This makes it difficult for you to find out who is the responsible party to pay your medical claim.
