Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 18-Jun-2010

An Ohio man was found dead in a backyard pool after police and fire crews were called by the victim's stepdaughter, said reports.

But he also appeared to have a facial injury, indicating he may have fallen and hit possibly knocked himself unconscious before falling into the pool. Medics pulled him all the way out of the water and pronounced him dead.

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.
