If there is pain and suffering involved, it depends on the type of treatment and for how long. the best thing to do is to call your car insurance company and ask.

first of all it depends on what type of treatment you are doing and for how long.

and it is not incorrect to say that the insurance just pays for the damages to car and medical bills, but what happens is that there are claim adjusters for your PIP #( the one that you have to give for any appointments and treatment to be billed to the insurance.) that determine whether or not you should get any money...so you may or may not. but if you want to find out how much you will get call your car insurance so they can tell you.

Generally, a personal injury settlement is a lump sum and is intended to compensate the claimant for past & future medical expenses and wage loss and other, concrete damages as discussed below.
