Deadly Pedestrian Crash on I-5 Southbound near Wilsonville
Date: March 19, 2015
A deadly crash between a semi-truck and a pedestrian occurred on Interstate 5 southbound near the rest area south of Wilsonville.
Troopers think a male pedestrian intentionally went into traffic.
We wish the man a full and speedy recovery.
In a pedestrian v. car accident, the pedestrian is often seriously injured. In cases where the driver is at fault, the driver’s auto insurance will ultimately compensate the injury victim.
Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP through your own auto insurance) still applies in this type of case, so use your own auto insurance to pay medical bills until you settle your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
If you don’t have an auto insurance policy, then your health insurance will cover your medical bills. If you don’t have auto or health insurance, the at-fault driver’s PIP should cover your medical bills.
If you are interested in discussing whether you might have a pedestrian accident, call a Portland pedestrian accident attorney for help and a free consultation.
