Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. If an individual has personal injury protection coverage, then generally they would be able to submit a claim for each individual instance of injury, yes. Now, it is possible that the insurance company is going to want information on which injury caused which damages, and it is also important to check the policy terms to make sure that multiple claims can be made in such a short period of time (some policies will have limitations on how much time must elapse between claims). However, if the policy does not have limits, then yes, multiple claims could be made within such a short period and benefits would theoretically have to be made twice. I hope this helps, and thank you for the opportunity to answer your question.
