Tigard HS Student Seriously Injured by Dump Truck
Date: January 11, 2016
Location: Durham Road
Monday afternoon a Tigard High School student was struck by a dump truck near the school.
The student stepped off the sidewalk in the path of the truck heading westbound on Durham Road.
The student was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The dump truck driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers.
We wish the student 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.
