What coverage do I have from my Auto Insurance?

Title 31A Chapter 22 Section 309 (31A-22-309) of the Utah State law states that every insured driver is guaranteed a minimum of $3000 of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) mandatory in the auto insurance policy. What does this mean to you?  Simply stated, if you are involved in an auto accident, your fault or not, you (and everyone in your car) are guaranteed  the option to receive up to $3000 of medical treatment following your accident.  We all know that $3000 is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to medical costs, but this is a start to getting you back to feeling like yourself again.

Medical expenses for auto accident can add up quickly, leaving most care to be paid by you personally.  With the $3000 minimum PIP, an ambulance ride to the ER where they do an MRI is sure to take up all this, leaving you to figure out how to get the real treatments that will help you to feel better as well as get you off the addictive pain medications and return to work so you can enjoy your life as you did before.

Did you know that in most cases, this PIP benefit can be increased to $10,000 or even $25,000 of coverage for just a few extra dollars each month.  We are talking about a $10 difference in your monthly payments to increase your benefit over 8 times.  This will definitely help you breathe easier just knowing that you are covered beyond the hospital.  You can use this extra coverage to get the treatments you need, not just the medications that cover the symptoms until the money runs out.

Contact your insurance agent to find out how little it costs to increase your benefits today.

 

But my car wasn’t even really damaged so I don’t need medical attention do I?

Some food for thought.  Even though there is only minimal to no visual damage to your car, your body absorbs nearly 5 times its weight in force through the collision.

In a study published in the JMPT (1998) suggests that low speed collisions of 2.5 mph may produce occupant symptoms, and visual damage to your vehicle may not be evident until 8.7 mph is achieved.  This study shows that a 4 MPH rear-end collision puts your head and neck through 5G’s of force.  Your neck is accustomed to holding 8 to 10 pounds in place, but with a small collision, your neck now has to hold nearly 50 pounds as it goes through the ‘whipping’ motion. (10 lbs. x 5G’s=50 lbs.)  Its no wonder why your neck will hurt after getting bumped.

You may feel symptoms of neck and shoulder pain and stiffness, headache, jaw pain, low back pain and even leg and knee pain.  You may even have symptoms of mental fogginess or a feeling of just not working right and these symptoms might come on even a couple of weeks later.

If you have been in an auto accident, check with us.  We can help reduce and even eliminate the symptoms you will have.   We specialize in helping you through recovery from your auto accident.
