Drowning Death Ruled Accidental

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 18-Feb-2011

The cause of Leslie Lavern Matthias, 61, was accidental drowning, according to reports from the autopsy performed by the state medical examiner.

Police were originally concerned that the death might have been as the result of foul play, reports say. The incident occurred when, early this month, officers from the Readlyn Police Department stopped to make a regular check at Matthias' home. Matthias was known to the police as an easygoing resident who sometimes required assistance in his daily life from time to time.

When they found him unresponsive, Police requested assistance from the Bremer County Sheriffs Office and the man was pronounced dead by the Bremer County Medical Examiner.

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.
