Question: What does it mean if the insurance company brings it on my behalf?
Injuries from accidents occur in many different settings. Sometimes the injuries arise from an automobile or motorcycle accident, other times they may occur as the result of a dangerous condition on another person's property or perhaps from the use of a product which malfunctions or is improperly designed. In the worst of circumstances, injuries can result in the wrongful death of a person leaving behind surviving family members to deal with the emotional and financial losses caused by the wrongful death.

Your PIP insurance company has a right to be repaid. If you don't file suit within 18 months to protect your rights and the rights of the insurance company, they may file suit to recover what they have paid. If the insurance company files suit against the negligent third party who caused the accident, they are also obligated to contact you and make sure that your rights are protected as well.
