Park Closes, Reopens Without Sandbox

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 25-Jan-2011

 

Two Redwood City, California parks which had high levels of E. coli bacteria in their sandboxes will reopen with no sandboxes.

 

Two years earlier, the city received a call from a grandmother of two children who claimed they had become sick immediately after playing in the sandbox, reports say.

 

The parks and recreation department tested the sand and found high levels of E. coli and Coliform bacteria, reports say. The bacteria, likely caused by cat and human feces, was removed when the sand was discarded and replaced with a higher-coarse grain. But the testing continued to reveal high levels of the bacteria. The city eventually simply replaced the sand areas with play sites that include water streams and a synthetic ground surface.

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.
