Fire Kills Three at Houston Daycare

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 1-Mar-2011

A fire broke out in a home daycare in the 2800 block of Crestpark late last week, killing three children.

 

Reports say the in-home daycare facility, named Jackie's Child Care, caught fire around 1:20 p.m. when the operator of the daycare was shopping. The children were left alone, reports say.

 

The daycare operator, Jessica Tata, 22, was evidently grocery shopping. Reports say that neighbors saw Tata pull up to the home with grocery bags as the fire started. The fire started on top of the electric stove in the kitchen. It started with a pot of oil which had been left on the burner.

 

When firefighters arrived they found two children who had the ability to get themselves outside onto the sidewalk and five other children trapped inside the burning house. Three of the children were killed in the fire. The three, Elizabeth Kojah, 20-months old, of Cypress, and Kendyll Stradford, also 20-months old, and Shomari Dickerson, 3, died. Three of the four others were transported to Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston in critical condition, which specializes in burn victims.

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.
