First-Party Benefits legal definition:
The purpose of first-party benefits is to pay for your medical bills up to your coverage limit in the event that you are injured in a motor vehicle accident.
First-party benefits – sometimes referred to as personal injury protection – are payable to you and family members residing in your household regardless of who was liable for the car accident that caused the injury.
After your first-party benefits are exhausted, your personal health insurance policy covers some or all of your remaining medical expenses.
In Pennsylvania, motorists are required to carry at least $5,000 in first-party insurance benefits. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is an optional first-party benefit in the keystone state.
