Who pays my bill if I am a pedestrian hit by a car

Anybody else go right head what happens if I get hit by a car as a pedestrian I don't have car insurance what if I get hit by a car that's a really good question if you're a pedestrian especially if you don't drive you probably don't have your own auto insurance so the law in Washington is that if you were hit by a car and they have personal injury protection that guy's insurance will pay your medical bills before you settle the case so that's something most people don't know and it's something we're consulting with a lawyer can really help make sure you can get the treatment that you need if they have personal injury protection now if they don't then if you've got now you might have your own auto insurance even though you're a pedestrian some people who drive also walk and so if you have your own personal injury protection that would be secondary so the driver who hit you their personal injury protection pays first and then your personal injury protection is next and then your health insurance and then we look for other creative ways to get you the treatment you need there's there's always if you are hurt and you need treatment there's always a way to get the treatment you need the worst thing you can do is not get the treatment you need because you don't know how to get it that's why you talk to a lawyer.
