When a driver has been in an accident, no-fault auto insurance allows the driver to collect from his or her insurance company regardless of who caused the accident. In Washington, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage is the only form of no fault insurance coverage. Washington State requires your insurance company offer personal injury protection (PIP) which will pay your medical bills when you are in a collision. Specific laws govern when, how much and for how long an injured party may collect.

PIP insurance pays for the medical expenses of the insured driver and his or her passengers injured in an auto accident. PIP insurance typically covers things like medical bills, wage loss and funeral expenses, but doesn't address pain and suffering or vehicle damage, though this varies by state and particular insurance policy provisions. PIP packages usually also have distinct coverage limits.
