Date: November 29, 2015
Location: Southeast Bybee Max Station
Sunday afternoon, a woman was killed while trying to cross MAX Orange Line tracks in Southeast Portland.
The pedestrian was in a fenced, restricted area between loading platforms and the train driver saw her but couldn’t stop in time.
The incident occurred south of the Southeast Bybee MAX station and is still under investigation.
we extend our condolences to the family and friends of the pedestrian.
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.
