In certain situations, your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) car insurance claim may be denied. Here are a few common reasons for denial:
- Fraudulent Claims: If you make a fraudulent claim, your PIP benefits may be denied. This could include lying about the extent of your injuries or claiming that an injury was related to the accident when it wasn’t.
- Excluded drivers: If you have excluded drivers on your policy and one of them is involved in an accident, your PIP benefits may be denied.
- Failure to pay premiums: If you fail to pay your premiums, your PIP coverage may be canceled. It’s important to keep up with your payments to avoid losing coverage.
- Excluded activities: PIP coverage may not apply if you were engaged in certain activities at the time of the accident, such as racing or using your vehicle for commercial purposes when it’s not covered by your policy.
- Fraud: If you commit fraud related to your PIP coverage, such as submitting false information on your application, your coverage may be canceled.
- Non-disclosure: If you fail to disclose important information on your application, such as a history of accidents or health conditions, your PIP coverage may be canceled.
- Intentional or criminal acts: If the accident occurred as a result of intentional or criminal acts on your part, your PIP claim might be denied. Insurance typically does not cover damages caused by illegal activities.
Your policy’s specific terms and conditions may vary, so it’s important to review your insurance documents or consult with your insurance provider for accurate information regarding the denial or cancellation of your PIP car insurance.
