In an ironic tragedy, Australian Matthew Appleby drowned on the day he was to take his exam to earn his lifesaving medallion.

Gosford, Australia officials announced the tragic coincidence after Appleby, 16, was found on Forresters Beach two weeks after he was reported missing. Reports say the preliminary finding was that his death was caused by drowning.

Appleby's school backpack and shoes were found on the beach during an extensive search of nearby beaches and coastal trails where Matthew was known to go. Reports say the conditions on the day Matthew vanished were treacherous. He was last seen at a bus stop near his home after he walked his brother to school.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
