Date: December 1, 2015
Location: Northeast 117th Avenue
Names: Georgann Dokos, Maria Castro Lopez
Tuesday afternoon a woman drove her car through the wall of Jack-in-the-Box near Vancouver injuring an employee.
Georgann Dokos, 65, of Yacolt, Washington, was heading south on Northeast 117th Avenue when her 2003 Subaru Outback crossed the center divider into oncoming traffic, then onto the sidewalk and through a Jack-in-the-Box’s wall at 7205 NE 117th Avenue.
An employee, Maria Castro Lopez, 42, of Vancouver was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Dokos was also taken to the hospital as well.
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.
