Landlord Hits Tenant with Car in Mobile Home Park
Date: April 5, 2015
Location: East Ellendale Avenue
Name: Patrick M. Howard
On Sunday a Dallas landlord hit one of his tenants with his car and also another neighbors vehicle and another home before speeding away.
The landlord Patrick M. Howard, 62, hit a 24-year-old leaving them injured near the vehicle. Howard then hit a car in front of a neighbor’s home and then hit another neighbor’s mobile home.
The injured tenant is expected to survive.
Howard was booked into the Polk County Jail on suspicion of second-degree assault, second-degree criminal mischief, hit-and-run, reckless driving and harassment.
The cause of Howard to angrily flee the mobile home park is still unclear.
We wish the tenant 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.
