NC Man Missing in Lake Feared Drown

Posted By Injury Attorney || 26-Jun-2010

Emergency crews reportedly say a young man was visiting friends fishing on Fountain Hill Lake in Lenoir County, NC when he jumped into the water and tried to swim to a raft, but didn't make it back to land.

Several boats searched for the youth, and dive teams and a number of law enforcement agencies combed both water and land for the teen. Fountain Hill Lake is reported to be 30 feet deep in some spots, making rescue -- or recovery -- more difficult.

Fearing the worst, the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office is waiting to release the man's name until his body is recovered. Crews say will continue the search. 

Family of the youth will certainly seek answers should he not be found alive. The Doan Law Firm, P.C., led by a Houston personal injury attorney, has substantial experience in water-related accidents and death litigation. 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.
