You’re injured when struck by a motor vehicle. Your auto policy covers you as a pedestrian for medical payments and possibly un(der)insured motorists and/or PIP coverage. Does “pedestrian” status limit you to coverage only if you’re on foot? What about being in a wheel chair? Skateboard? Roller skates? Bicycle? What if you’re sitting down or standing but not walking? Are you a pedestrian?

The “answers” to these questions can be found in my April Insurance Journal article.
