Man Injured after being Struck by Train in Tualatin
Date: November 27, 2015
Location: 18800 Southwest Boones Ferry Road
Friday evening, a man suffered injuries after being hit by a train in Tualatin.
A 35-year-old man was hit by a Portland & Western train in the 18800 block of Southwest Boones Ferry Road.
The man suffered non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Oregon Health & Science University.
Police believe alcohol may have been involved in the incident.
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.
