Motorcyclist Injured in Silverton Crash

Motorcyclist Injured in Silverton Crash

Wednesday evening a motorcyclist was seriously injured after a crash in Silverton.

The motorcycle was heading east on Silverton Road Northeast and collided with a westbound pickup truck turning onto Desart Road Northeast.

The motorcyclist was listed in critical condition at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.

The pickup truck driver suffered minor injuries.

We wish everyone involved in the crash a full and speedy recovery.

The rate of injury and death is much greater for motorcycle accidents than for normal car crashes because the rider is less protected than a driver. Unfortunately, this means a motorcycle rider is more likely to suffer serious injury and need extensive treatment, which will mean high medical bills.

If someone is injured in a motorcycle accident, like this one, there are several legal options. Unfortunately in Oregon, motorcycle insurance policy holders are not required to have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) so most policies don’t have it. If the injury victim does have PIP, it will help pay medical bills and lost wages, no matter who is at fault.

To reach a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance, the injury victim must show the bad driver’s insurance company three things:

  1. That their insured driver was negligent in some way;
  2. That the accident was caused by this negligence; and
  3. That the injury victim suffered damages due to the accident.
