Can a passenger in a car hit by an uninsured driver get uninsured motorist (UM) benefits?

Yes.  Uninsured motorist benefits typically apply to passengers of the vehicle they occupy at the time of the auto accident.  Many insurance contracts have exclusions and need to be read carefully.  If the passenger had their own insurance policy with UM coverage, then both insurance policies might apply.
