If the injured person was a pedestrian, he/she would be entitled to no-fault benefits through the insurance of the car that hit him. If the injured party was in another vehicle, then that vehicle would be responsible for the no-fault. Otherwise, he/she would be uninsured since MVAIC only affords benefits to U.S. residents.
As far as damages for bodily injury, and assuming the striking vehicle was in fact uninsured, the only recourse would be through insurance for a household vehicle, if any, If not, the hurt person would have to sue the wrongdoer, obtain a judgment and attempt to collect.If you or a loved one is hit by an Uninsured Motorist Claim, it is important to speak to a seasoned personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights and assert your claim.
