Soft Drink Driver Injured at WalMart

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 26-Jun-2011

A vendor for Pepsi Beverages Company of Roanoke, Edward Smallwood, suffered severe head trauma while making a delivery Friday morning at the Salem Walmart, reports say. Smallwood, 33, was injured in the loading dock area when he went under a metal ramp to pick up an item and the ramp fell on him.

The incident is being investigated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

He was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and was still considered critical earlier this month. Smallwood has been employed by Pepsi for about 7 years, 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.
