Vancouver Woman Struck by Car in Crosswalk
Date: September 14, 2015
Location: Northeast 134th Street
Names: Fatima G. Molina, Ryan A. Griffith
Monday morning a Vancouver woman was injured after she was struck by a car while crossing the street at the off ramp from Interstate 5 to Northeast 134th Street.
Fatima F. Molina, 27, of Vancouver, was crossing the street when a 2004 Kia Rio struck her taking the northbound exit of I-5.
Molina was taking to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The Kia driver, Ryan A. Griffith, 24, of Ridgefield, was cited for second-degree negligent driving.
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.
