Body Found In River Identified

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 27-Feb-2011

A man whose body was found partially submerged in the Schuylkill River early this month has been identified, reports say, as Alan Ruggles, 54, of Reading, PA.

The man's body was found in the river, between the Berks County Fire Training Center and the Thun Trail, in Cumru Township, but authorities had no idea how he had died or who he was. And although the coroner could apparently not determine when he died or how long he was in the water, the manner of death was consistent with accidental drowning.

The death is still under investigation, however, and a ruling on the manner of Ruggles' death is pending, although reports say there was no sign of foul play.

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.
