Notes of Decisions

Nothing in PIP statutes prohibits plaintiff from pleading and proving all special damages in a civil action, even though plaintiff has received PIP benefits from his insurer. Koberstein v. Sierra Glass, 65 Or App 409, 671 P2d 1190 (1983), as modified by 66 Or App 883, 675 P2d 1126 (1984), Sup Ct review denied

PIP endorsement which offsets PIP payments against policy's liability limits does not contravene PIP scheme of these statutes. Edwards v. Bonneville Automobile Insurance Co., 68 Or App 863, 683 P2d 142 (1984), aff'd 299 Or 119, 699 P2d 670 (1985)
