Pedestrian Hit Crossing Third Street in Bend
Date: November 8, 2015
Location: Northeast Third Street
Name: Danny Lee Williams, Taylor Eric Smith
Sunday evening a man was struck and injured by a minivan while crossing Third Street near the southbound Bend Parkways on-ramp.
Taylor Eric Smith, 18, of Bend, was driving a 2005 Ford Freestar minivan south on Third Street when he collided with a pedestrian.
The pedestrian, Danny Lee Williams, 51, was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
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.
