Pedestrian Seriously Injured in MAX Crash in Gresham
Date: March 20, 2015
Location: Southeast 181st Avenue and East Burnside Street
Late Friday morning a MAX train hit and seriously injured a pedestrian in Gresham.
An eastbound blue line train hit a man in his 40s or 50s at the intersection of Southeast 181st Avenue and East Burnside Street.
The man was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with serious critical injuries.
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.
