PIP Wage Benefits
1) The traffic crash left me unable to work. What should I do?
If you cannot work because of your accident injuries, see your primary care physician immediately to request a release from work for at least two weeks. Two weeks is the threshold for Oregon’s PIP wage loss benefits.
TIP: To get the PIP wage loss benefits started, obtain a signed, written work release from your doctor. Also, get written verification salary at time of loss. Fax both documents to the insurer providing PIP benefits requesting it pay PIP wage loss benefits.
TIP: Whenever you communicate with your PIP carrier include the claim number. Do not communicate with the insurer for the party at fault without first consulting with a lawyer.
