Question: Is "PIP" mandatory on motorcycles?
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.

No. The statutes define an automobile very specifically. PIP coverage is mandatory on passenger cars and trucks. Policies on motorcycles and other specialty type vehicles are not required to provide PIP coverage. Many companies will write PIP benefits for motorcycles or other specialty vehicles; however, there is always an additional charge. To insure that you have benefits, you must contact your agent at the time your purchase a motorcycle or other specialty vehicle and make sure that your company adds "PIP" coverage to the insurance policy which you take out on the motorcycle or specialty vehicle.
