Alcohol/Energy Drink Leads to Hospital

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 2-Apr-2011

Several freshmen at Central Washington University were hospitalized after attending an off campus party in October last year at which they consumed Four Loko, an alcoholic beverage containing twelve percent alcohol and caffeine.

The students evidently became violently ill and lost consciousness after consuming several cans of the drink. Reports say that blood alcohol content of the students ranged from 0.12 to 0.35, putting them well into legally impaired status.

Reports say this was not the first time Four Loko has caused hospitalizations. Almost two dozen students were hospitalized over the span of a few weeks at northern New Jersey's Ramapo College after drinking Four Loko. The University has since banned the drink from campus.

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.
