Thank you for choosing Just Answer. PIP is on top of any personal injury settlement. It is usually used to pay medical expenses while the settlement is being negotiated. There is no offset against any personal injury settlement, and the attorneys' fees are a percentage of the settlement, so they can not eclipse it.
No, they should not. That is payments made from medical payments coverage (usually around $5000) should not come out of your personal injury settlement.
If there are unpaid medical bills at the time of your settlement, the providers will have a lien against your settlement.
