Your Own Insurance May Provide Coverage
Many pedestrians and cyclists hurt by vehicles are surprised to learn their own automobile insurance likely provides coverage. If your own automobile policy has uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM), this will apply to any injury caused by a motor vehicle. Thus, if you are out jogging and are struck by a car (as Keith Fuicelli was), your own UM/UIM coverage provides benefits. In addition to your automobile insurance, the automobile policies of anyone living in your household may also provide coverage.
