When someone is injured in an automobile collision, the first step is to assess whether the negligent party has insurance and; hopefully, adequate limits. If the negligent third party is not adequately insured, the injured victim can seek recovery through Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Under/Uninsured Motorist Insurance (UIM).
