Man Rescued After 300-Foot Fall In Crater Lake National Park

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 10-Aug-2011

Eric Brimlow, 27, of Syracuse, New York, fell from the rim of the Crater Lake caldera in Crater Lake National Park after venturing beyond a barrier wall at Sinnott Memorial overlook.

Reports say he had jumped from a walkway onto a snow bank, then slid down several hundred feet of steep terrain, coming to rest at the base of a tree 300 feet below the rim.

Rangers immediately sent rescue equipment to him, hoisting him first to a small ledge, then to a litter that took him to rim of the crater, reports say.

He suffered serious injuries and was transported from the park to the Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Oregon.

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.
