Will car insurance cover me if I was struck as a pedestrian?
Unfortunately, some of the most devastating injuries occur in automobile-pedestrian wrecks. These devastating injuries can lead to extraordinary medical bills and an uncertain medical future. However, many individuals are unaware that just because you weren’t in your vehicle at the time of an incident, car insurance coverage will still kick in under most car insurance policies should a vehicle contact you as a pedestrian.
Not only would any car insurance likely kick in from the responsible party, but if the vehicle makes contact with a pedestrian, the pedestrians Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage, as well as PIP, will likely be triggered. Our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience determining what insurance policies may cover a particular injury.
