82-Year-Old Killed in Escalator Accident

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 23-Nov-2010

Helen Jackson, 82, of Dorchester, Ma, was killed in an accident involving an escalator at the MBTA's State Street Station, reports say.

Jackson was heading to a doctor's appointment last month while embarking a station escalator when she apparently fell and a piece of her clothing got caught in the machinery, reports say.

Emergency crews reportedly rushed to free her, but she was pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital. Jackson also reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest, but it was not clear whether the cardiac problem came before or after the fall. The incident remains under investigation, and an autopsy was scheduled to be preformed.

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.
