Beaverton Man Seriously Injured after being Struck by MAX Train in Hillsboro

Tuesday morning a Beaverton man suffered serious injuries after he was struck by a TriMet MAX train in Hillsboro.

The man was hit by a train near Southwest 185th Avenue and Baseline Road, where he fell and suffered serious head injuries. He was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland for treatment.

The man was waiting for an eastbound train to pass before he crossed the tracks and was hit by a westbound train. He apparently didn’t see the second train coming.

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.
