Ohio Child In Critical Condition After Near-Drowning

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 8-Jul-2010

A six-year-old boy who almost drowned in a swimming pool Saturday was critical after a near drowning in Newark, Ohio last month.

Warren Meredith, the six-year-old, was flown to Children's Hospital in Columbus late Saturday after he was pulled from the bottom of a pool in Newark, where he had been attending a pool party, according to reports.

Little is known about the pool accident, except that the child was discovered at the bottom of the pool and pulled from the water by family. A doctor happened to be on the scene and started CPR on the boy before emergency crews arrived. A hospital spokeswoman said Sunday that no information was being released about Meredith.

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.
