A: This is something a Maryland attorney would know best, as insurance is governed by state laws and can vary from state to state. But your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, PIP stands for personal injury protection. It is coverage for medical bills, lost wages, and related damages. Ask your attorney what the check represents, just to be certain. If the check comes with an EOB (explanation of benefits) and it references names of doctors or other medical providers, it's likely to be for medical services you received. Good luck
