Many people are unaware of the fact that pedestrians are usually the innocent party in car vs walker collisions.
They may also be unaware that most of the time there is insurance coverage available under Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist provisions of the pedestrian’s auto policy even if the driver of the at fault vehicle is uninsured.
