Teen Girl Struck by School Bus at SE McLoughlin Crosswalk
Date: September 14, 2015
Location: SE McLoughlin
Monday afternoon a 15-year-old girl was struck by a Gladstone School District bus at the intersection of Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard and Southeast Glen Echo Boulevard.
The teen girl was in a crosswalk when she was struck by a bus carrying students at Kraxberger Middle School.
The teen girl was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
No one on the school bus was injured.
We wish the girl a full and speedy recovery.
If a child is injured, the statute of limitations is complicated. ORS 12.160 states that the time for bringing the lawsuit does not start being counted until the child turns 18. However, the time limit will never be extended for more than five years, nor will it be extended for more than one year after the child’s 18th birthday.
This statute creates confusion for many people, some lawyers included. So if your child has been injured, in either an auto crash or another type of accident, protect their rights (and your financial well-being) by considering a qualified injury lawyer. Our Portland personal injury lawyers offer free consultations.
