Indiana Student Drowns in Lake Accident

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 10-Jul-2010

A 13-year-old Crown Point student at St. Mary's Catholic Community School died in what appeared to be an accidental drowning last month at Hermit Lake, reports conclude.

Sean Woods, who lived in Merrillville, Indiana, was attending a friend's party when he somehow slipped below the water and drowned. Emergency services were called, but were reportedly unable to resuscitate the youth.

A coroner's team was then called to the pool in the unincorporated Center Township at 11 p.m. Woods' death was certified at the scene at 11:45 p.m. Reportedly, Lake County police are investigating.

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.
