Person Injured after Being Trapped Under a School Bus in Northeast Portland


A man was injured early Tuesday morning after being trapped under a school bus in Northeast Portland.

Around 7am at Northeast 162nd Avenue and Sandy Boulevard, a man’s clothing and backpack were entangled in the bus’s undercarridge. The man was able to talk to the paramedics and was transported to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.

The bus was operated by Reynolds School District and was empty at the time of the accident.

We wish the man a full and speedy recovery.

When something like this happens, it can hard to determine the reason for the accident. You may be surprised to read this from a personal injury attorney, but it may be nobody’s fault. In legal terms, this is known as an “Act of God,” or an event beyond anyone’s control.

But a personal injury lawyer can help investigate, to help determine if there was a medical problem, an unseen road block, a pedestrian that ran out in front of the car, etc.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer means you will not have to deal with investigation yourself.

Investigation includes:

  1. Analyzing police and fire reports, as well as insurance reports
  2. Understanding the injuries, including the doctor’s notes and treatment plans
  3. Examination of the accident scene, the surrounding circumstance, and even hiring an accident forensics specialist if needed
  4. A determination of causality
  5. Assessment of all damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering

If you’ve been in an accident, and you are unsure the cause or possible liability, call an experienced Portland personal injury lawyer for help – and they can help you understand your legal options. If there’s a question about who’s at fault for an accident, getting bills paid can be delayed and be complicated – so get help today.
