What is PIP insurance?

Also known as "no-fault insurance," Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is an extension of auto insurance that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. Though in some states PIP is mandatory, it isn't available in others. You should know that Washington State law allows a pedestrian who is injured by a motorist to recover medical and wage loss benefits under that driver's PIP coverage, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Washington law states that as an injured pedestrian, you are entitled to the at-fault driver's no-fault PIP coverage, if it exists.
I was involved in a auto accident and the bills or driven me crazy, but in order to put a claim in on PIP is it a good idea to place this claim on the other parties insurance or I heard i could place this claim on my own insurance company which is BEST, and how much can i claim for example if my medical bills and lost wages or $2000 and the pip all allowed is $2500 what should PiP fianll payout should BE ? AND if i file on the other parties insurance will this anyway interfere with a law suit if i decide to get a lawyer for the other insurance co...? thanks jwilliams
