Missouri Water Patrol Recovers Body In The Sac River

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 5-Jul-2010

The Missouri Water Patrol found the body of a fisherman swept away by current near Caplinger Mills, MO in the Sac River last month, reports say.  

The dead fisherman, Kenneth Houke, was swept from a low-head dam last month in Caplinger Mills, and after an extensive search, his body was finally found. This is the second drowning in two years at the site, according to reports.

The accident underscores the sentiment of many in the community who are now arguing the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers should close gates at Stockton Dam during busy holidays, believing the closure would prevent dangerous high water downstream at Caplinger Mills. The Water Patrol says when Stockton Lake is full, engineers have no schedule to close gates at Stockton to decrease river levels at the public's request.

In the event of a known hazardous natural resource - especially one where the local authorities have failed to fix a problem - the risk of injury or death may be borne by the local government. Should you or a loved one be involved in a water-related injury under circumstances such as these, you need good legal counsel.

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.
