Were You Hit By A Car Or Injured While Crossing The Street?
A pedestrian or bicyclist who is struck and injured by a car, truck, bus, train or any other vehicle has the same right to seek financial compensation as a person who is injured in a car crash or a workplace accident.
Many pedestrians wrongly believe that they cannot pursue a personal injury lawsuit if they were injured while crossing in the middle of a street or if an accident could be construed as their fault. Do not make this mistake.

For obvious reasons, accidents in which pedestrians or bicyclists are struck by motor vehicles frequently result in serious injuries. This can leave the victim facing a mountain of medical bills and unable to work due to injuries. If you find yourself in this situation, the financial strain should not fall on you.
What If I Was Involved In A Hit-And-Run Accident
Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents are hit-and-run incidents. If a pedestrian or bicyclist is struck by a motorist who speeds away, the injured individual may feel there is no one to name in a lawsuit. It is important to know that you still have legal options in these situations that could safeguard you from depleting your own savings to pay medical bills.
All Oregon noncommercial auto insurance policies have no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) health care and wage loss coverage. If you are injured in an auto, bicycle or pedestrian accident, PIP covers your medical bills related to the accident for up to one year or $15,000. It also covers wage loss up to $3,000 per month for one year.
