Quite frequently, when people become injured in a car accident, they choose not to see a doctor because they feel they can’t afford it. What they don’t realize is that their Oregon car insurance policy is legally required to pay for at least the first $15,000 in medical bills that are related to the accident. This coverage also extends to physical therapy, dental work, chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture. It does not matter if you were at fault in the accident or not. This part of your car insurance policy is call Personal Injury Protection, or PIP. So you see, car accident victims who choose not to see a doctor are unnecessarily depriving themselves of insurance benefits they’ve already paid for. All you have to do is notify your car insurance company that you’ve been in an accident, fill out some forms, and then you’re good to go.
