Does Washington state require PIP coverage?

Personal injury protection is coverage you can add to your regular car insurance policy to help pay for wage loss, medical and hospital expenses, loss of services and funeral expenses, all damages your typical insurance plan does not cover. If you pay for PIP, the law requires your insurance company to pay out your claim regardless of who was at fault for the accident. In a state like Washington, PIP is handy to have, especially if you cause an accident or if you sustain injuries in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist. That said, does the state require drivers to carry PIP? No, it does not.
