Some types of insurance coverage in Ohio are mandatory, such as bodily injury liability. However, other types of coverage can be very beneficial to motorists.
One such type of insurance is personal injury protection (PIP), which can provide compensation for medical and other expenses. However, there may be limits as to which types of costs are covered and the amount covered per person.
In general, PIP may cover loss of income, hospital and medical expenses, earning potential in the event of a disability, and funeral costs. There may be other types of compensation available, depending on the specifics of your policy.
No one can predict when he or she will suffer serious injury in an accident. That’s why motorists shouldn’t just consider mandatory insurance coverage, but should also consider optional types of coverage that may be beneficial.
In addition to PIP, you might consider adding uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. This can provide compensation if you are injured in an accident in which the other driver has no insurance or not enough coverage to cover your financial damages.
