The driver, Frederick Chao, 37, of North Portland, did not show signs of impairment but police said he may have “suffered a medical event” before hitting Marquez.
Marquez was taken to a Portland hospital with serious injuries.
We wish Angel Hector Marquez 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.
