Q. Does pip have anything to do with pain and suffering
A: In Michigan, PIP is not the same as pain and suffering. PIP refers to "personal injury protection" benefits. PIP benefits include the payment of hospital bills, doctors' bills, 85% of lost wages, household replacement services, attendant (nursing) care and other benefits.

Under Michigan law, if you have auto insurance your own car insurance pays all PIP benefits up to the coverage limit you purchased. The minimum amount of PIP coverage is $250,000, unless you qualified for a lower limit. The other driver does not pay PIP benefits.

If you don't have car insurance, then you can turn to a family member or the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan (MACP). It is best to talk to a lawyer if you don't have car insurance because there are very specific rules about which auto insurance carrier pays PIP benefits, and the amount they pay.

Pain and suffering usually refers to a negligence case against the driver or owner of the at-fault vehicle. This case is for non-economic damages. To obtain pain and suffering compensation in Michigan, you prove the other person was at-least 50% at-fault for causing the crash. You also have to have a threshold injury.

An attorney experienced in Michigan car accident law can walk you through what a threshold injury is what is means.
