Drowning Health Club Pool Ruled Accidental

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

A recent investigation into the drowning of a boy at a South Austin gym has been ruled accidental, reports say.  

The family of a four-year-old Austin boy who died after swimming at the outdoor pool at LifeTime Fitness was told recently that the death of the child, Colin Holst, was the result of an accident.

 

Holst died one day after a lifeguard pulled him unconscious from the outdoor pool, even as

other staff members performed CPR on the child. The pool was reportedly fully staffed with seven lifeguards at the time of the accident.

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.
