Woman Dies of Apparent E. Coli Infection

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 5-Oct-2010

A Knox County, Kentucky resident, died recently at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington after being admitted for intestinal problems. The victim, Vickie Shelton, had eaten ground beef before becoming ill, and public health officials conducted tests to determine whether that ground beef was contaminated with E. Coli.

Before it was discovered that the meat was tainted, the American Foods Group of Green Bay, Wisconsin issued the recall on products produced in October and reportedly shipped to retailers and distributors in seven states including Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Virginia. The investigation is reportedly continuing.

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.
