Should I take a PIP Deductible?

In short – NO!  PIP or personal injury protection benefits are part of the limited no-fault system for motor vehicle crashes in Massachusetts.  If you are injured in a motor vehicle crash, unless you die, suffer a fracture, lose a body part or significant function, or a sustain disfigurement, you must incur $2,000 in medical bills in order to file a claim for pain and suffering against the negligent party.  See https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartIII/TitleII/Chapter231/Section6D
