A pedestrian who is injured as a result of the negligence of an uninsured motorist may feel that there is no source of funds from which to make a claim for the injuries sustained. However, if the pedestrian has uninsured motorist benefits or medical pay benefits, there is a source of funds against which to make a claim. These benefits provide coverage if the owner of the policy or a member of the insured household is injured. These benefits apply even though the injured party is not in his or her own vehicle at the time of the collision. If you were injured as a result of the negligence of an uninsured motorist, you should immediately seek advice from an attorney in order to determine the full extent of your rights under the law and under the provisions of your insurance policy.
