If you get injured, chances are the motorists may not have enough liability insurance to cover your medical expenses alone much less pay for your injury, suffering, lost wages, surgery, disability, scarring and other damages. Glenn McGovern has still managed to recover substantial damages by pursuing other claims for defective products that may have contributed to the injury like defectively manufactured taillights that did not meet known safety standards. This resulted in recovery for a motorcyclist where normally there would be little recovery from an uninsured motorist.
