The coverages will have different rules. So coverage for property damage will have different coverage rules than the uninsured motorist coverage, which may be different from the medical payments coverage. An attorney has to review your policy to determine the coverage available. Also, do you have an automobile policy? That may come into play also.

The coverage available to you on your wife's policy will be detailed in the language of the policy itself. If the vehicle that struck you was at fault however, you may have a claim for damages against that driver (and the owner of the vehicle as well). You should consult with an attorney to determine what benefits your policy will provide and to explore the possible claims against the other vehicle involved.
Depends on the insurance policy language. Bring the policy to an insurance coverage attorney. It may be worth it to pay an experienced attorney to review it. Good luck.
