When Do I Qualify for PIP benefits?

The availability of PIP benefits directly affects the value of a Baltimore automobile/car accident claim as the benefits, in part, cover medical expenses that would otherwise need to be paid from settlements of judgments. Passengers in these vehicles generally do not qualify. 

  • buses
  • taxicabs and
  • state-owned vehicles 

There may be exceptions that should be explored where the injured person is covered under a separate PIP policy. An experienced personal injury attorney can intelligently advise you if you have PIP*, if you qualify for When Do I Qualify for PIP benefits? - Personal Injury Lawyer Baltimore: Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney | Eric T.
