Pedestrian Accident

It’s important to keep in mind, you don’t have to be out walking to be considered a pedestrian. You’re considered a pedestrian if you were not in a motor vehicle at the time of the accident. This can include if you were changing a tire, riding a wheelchair, or even cleaning your windshield.

If you were hit by a motor vehicle, there are some steps you should take immediately.

  • Call the police. Unlike a vehicle vs vehicle accident, police are required to respond when a pedestrian is hit.
  • Seek medical attention if needed.
  • Get the driver’s name, address, and insurance information. If a police officer responds, she or he can assist you with that.
  • Obtain the photos of the scene and vehicle that hit you. Be sure to get one of the license plate.
  • If you have your own car insurance policy, you should contact it right away. Oregon law requires that your Personal Injury Protection benefits are primary. Getting the insurance claims set up correctly early on can save you additional hassle.
