Five Pedestrians Hit by Vehicle on Hayden Island
Date: November 10, 2015
Location: North Hayden Island Drive
Tuesday morning, five people were hit by a vehicle in the parking lot of Mannheim Auto Auction on Hayden Island in North Portland.
Their injuries were described as non-life threatening.
The driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrians remained at the scene at the 300 block of North Hayden Island Drive.
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.
