Pedestrian Injured in Salem Crash
Date: August 27, 2015
Location: Lancaster Drive NE
Thursday evening a pedestrian was struck by a car while crossing Lancaster Drive NE in Salem.
The pedestrian was crossing the street near Sunnyview Road NE at an unmarked crosswalk when they were hit.
The pedestrian was taken to Salem Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the car is cooperating with the investigation.
We wish the pedestrian 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.
