Pedestrians Injured in Semi-truck Accident in NE Portland
Date: August 6, 2015
Location: Northeast 102nd & Glisan Street
Thursday morning, two women pedestrians were taken to the hospital after a semi-truck made a sharp turn onto the curb in Northeast Portland.
Police are still not sure if the pedestrians were hit by the semi-truck or if they got hurt trying to get out of the way.
The truck was turning onto Northeast 102nd from Glisan Street and also hit one of the walk signals at the traffic light.
We wish the two women 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.
