Toddler Nearly Drowns in Inflatable Pool

Posted By Injury Lawyer || 25-Aug-2010

A two-year-old child almost drowned in a backyard pool earlier this month as the mother's boyfriend, who was watching the infant at the time, walked away to talk on his cell phone, reports say.

The near drowning accident occurred in Clay Township, IN, police said, in a small plastic inflatable, above-ground pool. The toddler was left alone for just an instant and when the mother walked outside to check on him, the youngster was face-down in the pool.

The child, reported as 23-month-old Cole Smith, was rushed to the hospital, with several police cars escorting in formation around the ambulance. He remains in a medically-induced coma in a pediatric intensive care unit. Reports say the toddler's condition is improving.

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.
