Teen Drowning Victim Memorialized

Posted By Personal Injury Lawyer || 13-Jul-2010

Fifteen-year-old Ron Edmonds, of Franklin, MN  was remembered at a vigil Sunday, the day after he drowned in a private lake in a Franklin neighborhood. The popular middle school student was reportedly swimming with friends when he drowned.

Edmonds mother, Lisa Allen, publicly let the two friends Ron was swimming with that she doesn't blame them for his death, and they shouldn't blame themselves. She said there was nothing else they could do to save him.

Family members say they hope the tragedy serves as a reminder to take extra precautions while swimming this summer. And as summer heats up, parents in the area know that drowning deaths will rise.

In tragic lake drownings such as this, families of the victims need to know their rights. This accident occurred in a private pond, and there may be some responsibility on the part of the owners or managers of the pond. To find out if restitution is due, they need expert 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.
