US Death Linked to European E. Coli Outbreak

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 1-Aug-2011

An Arizona man has died after being exposed to the deadly E. coli bacteria strain that has caused so much panic in Germany.

Federal officials have reportedly confirmed that the death was as a direct result of contact to the same E. coli strain. Reports say that a half-dozen deaths have been connected to this E. coli strain, but this death of the Arizona man appears to be a direct link to the same deadly E. coli strain in Europe.

The Arizona man had reportedly just recently visited Germany, and has become the first known fatality linked to the outbreak that has killed at least 50 Europeans. The man, whose name was not released, was over 65 years of age.

The German E. coli outbreak sickened thousands, with more than 700 becoming significantly ill with kidney problems. The started the second week in May.

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.
