Oil Services Company Indicted for Manslaughter

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 1-Sep-2010

An Ohio grand jury has indicted a southwest Ohio company, United Oil Recovery Services Inc. and its environmental health and safety manager, with involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, criminal endangering and environmental violations in the 2008 death of a treatment plant worker who authorities say was overcome by toxic gas. The company president and plant manager and three officials are also charged with endangering worker safety, report say..

Reports say sodium hydrosulfide, used to speed up a wastewater treatment process at the company's Middletown plant, caused a chemical reaction, killing 45-year-old Thomas Rogers, who was working in the plant at the time of the toxic gas release.

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.
