KATHLEEN LEGGETTE VS. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES INSURANCE COMPANY ("GEICO"), ET AL. A-1911-15T3

KATHLEEN LEGGETTE VS. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES INSURANCE 
COMPANY ("GEICO"), ET AL. 
A-1911-15T3 

The issue of first impression presented in this matter is whether an out-of-state automobile insurance policy is deemed to provide PIP benefits when the named insured, while a pedestrian, is injured by a New Jersey driver. We conclude medical expenses for injuries suffered while a pedestrian, are not covered by N.J.S.A. 17:28-1.4, commonly known as the "Deemer Statute," which is triggered only when there is a nexus between the out-of-state automobile and the accident.
