If you are injured when riding in, or struck by, an uninsured vehicle you could be left to foot the bill for your recovery.
so what happens to people who never had insurance because they never had a car, but one day are strolling down the street and someone in an uninsured hits them? or even in the situation listed above, why would you be left to pay the recovery bills?
If someone they lived with had an auto policy the Accident Benefits coverage would extend from that policy.
If they lived by themselves there would be no AB coverage through any Ontario auto policy. They need a lawyer.
