Personal injury protection is a type of personal injury insurance which covers both emotional and physical injuries. If you have been involved in an incident that was not your fault you may be able to make a claim against personal injury protection and get compensation for your injuries.
You may also be able to get compensation for costs that you have incurred as a result of the injuries. This can include loss of earnings, travel expenses and costs of buying in extra help with personal or household tasks and child care. It can be difficult to know where and how to start this process.
Who should you contact first? Are there people who can help you? If you are in this situation you will find the following information useful.
