Girl Struck by Vehicle on North Lombard Street
Date: October 2, 2015
Location: North Lombard Street
Friday morning an 11-year-old girl was struck by a vehicle on North Lombard Street.
The girl got off an eastbound TriMet bus at the 3200 block of North Lombard Street when she was hit by a westbound vehicle, that didn’t stop in time.
The girl was taken to the hospital with traumatic injuries and is expected to survive. The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.
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.
