What is the Utah “No Fault” Law?
Many people are confused after they’ve been in an accident and started to receive medical treatment. This is because they are told that they must bill their own automobile insurance for their initial medical treatment. People are left wondering, “Why should I bill my own insurance company when I didn’t cause the accident?” This gives more stress and concern after what has already been a life altering event. So what does the Utah “No Fault Law Insurance” mean to you?
The Utah “No Fault Insurance” Law simply means that your own automobile insurance will take some of the hassle out of getting your initial medical bills paid. It is based on the premise that your own automobile insurance company and the automobile insurance company for the at-fault driver are in the best position to determine who should really be paying the bills. Thus when you are hurt, the initial bills will be billed to your insurance and covered by Utah’s PIP/No Fault/Bandaid Benefits. In the legal process you also don’t want to find yourself in a fight with the other insurance company so the Utah “No Fault” Law allows your insurance to step in and fight for you.
