Earlier this month Lubbock ISD official swere forced to notify parents of Irons Middle School students regarding an afternoon firearms incident near school grounds, reports say.

In an audio phone message left for parents, Middle School Principal Ken Carasez informed parents there had been an accidental discharge of a firearm, which injured one adult. 

The adult, an auto passenger who was possibly picking up a student, was wounded in a vehicle and  treated by paramedics near the school.  No others were injured during the incident and LPD was continuing their investigation, reports say.

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.
