Father and Son Die in North Carolina Lake

Posted By Personal Injury Lawyer || 12-Jul-2010

Mill Spring, NC father and son drowned in a North Carolina lake after they jumped in to try and save a young child in their care from drowning last month.

Reports say 48-year-old William Butch Jackson and 21-year-old William Butch Jackson Jr. were fishing from their small boat on Lake Adger when the elder Jackson's young daughter fell in the water.

Reports say the father and his adult son jumped in to rescue the girl, but the pair never surfaced. Their bodies were recovered hours later. Reports say the girl was wearing a life preserver and was eventually rescued by a woman on shore. The coves in this particular lake have a plethora of tree stumps and other debris where swimmers can become entangled and drown.

Although both the victims and the survivors were members of the same families, in lake accidents such as this, families of the victims need to know their rights. The Doan Law Firm, P.C., led by a Houston drowning attorney, has extensive experience in water-related injury and death. For more information, contact The Doan Law Firm, P.C. today.

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.
