If you were a passenger in a car accident, you may still collect compensation under Uninsured Motorist Coverage
According to Illinois law, uninsured motorist coverage must be included in all insurance policies. This type of coverage is of critical importance for all motorists because in addition to covering you, the policy holder, uninsured motorist coverage may also cover family members and children. Furthermore, if you were driving a vehicle that did not belong to you or were riding as a passenger at the time of an auto accident, uninsured motorist coverage benefits will still extend to you and your household members. Uninsured motorist coverage still applies if you or a family member were a bystander, pedestrian or bicyclist. In order for this to apply, the motorist or driver who is held liable for your injury must have been uninsured. If you have been injured in a car accident or truck accident and the driver was uninsured, you may still be able to collect for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and serious injury.
