Pedestrian Injured in Stayton Crash
Date: December 19, 2015
Location: West Locust Street and Heritage Loop
Saturday morning a pedestrian was injured after a vehicle hit her at the intersection of W. Locust Street and Heritage Loop in Stayton.
A Dodge Ram 2500 was turning from Locust onto Heritage Loop when it struck the woman.
The 28-year-old pedestrian was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
We wish the woman 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.
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.
