Flagger Seriously Injured after being Struck by Car on Highway 99W
Date: November 19, 2015
Location: Highway 99W
Thursday evening, a flagger was hit by a car while working on Highway 99W just south of Amity.
The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
We wish the pedestrian a full and speedy recovery.
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.
