Woman who Drove SUV Into Dallas Pond Ruled Accidental

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

Although exactly what happened still isn't clear, what is clear is that the death of 39-year-old Jennifer Michelle Patton was an accident.

Patton veered off the road and into a pond, trapping her inside and ultimately drowning her, reports say. Patton, a marketing coordinator for an architectural firm two miles from where she died, was driving north on Fallkirk Drive near Campbell when she inexplicably veered left and drove into the water. The causes of the accident are still unknown.

 

Emergency crews were called and pulled Patton through the sunroof. Patton was unconscious and was pronounced dead at Richardson Hospital. No witnesses saw the vehicle enter the water, and only one witness saw it before it disappeared under the surface, reports say.

Drowning injuries and deaths are tragic in both consequences and aftermath. Who do you look to for help?

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.
