Colorado Personal injury protection insurance (PIP), sometimes called no-fault insurance coverage, pays benefits related to personal injuries resulting from an automobile accident. Generally speaking, automobile liability coverage pays only if another driver or injured party successfully sues for damages or certain state-defined damage thresholds are exceeded. PIP is for you and your passengers; liability is for damages you cause. This coverage applies without regard to who was at fault in the accident. The coverage pays claims relating to injuries, but does not cover damage to a car, or to any other property.

Personal injury protection insurance can pick up the following kinds of losses, subject to policy terms:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost wages Accidents

That is why you have insurance. It is important to make sure you have the right insurance, and Colorado Insurance is here to help.
