Teenager's Wardrobe May Have Caused Drowning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 28-May-2011

An autistic teenager may have drowned in a Singapore pond at Woodlands Town Centre on New Year's Day because he had a propensity for rolling up his t-shirt to his shoulders. Reports say that simple fashion alteration could have restricted his movement enough to have caused his death when he entered the water.

The boy, Matthew Chye Qi Yang, 19, was about 5-feet tall. He drowned in a pond that was slightly less than five-feet deep.

He had essentially run away from home when his father arrived home and opened the front door on New Year’s Eve last year. The father, Mr Chye, called police about four hours later when Matthew failed to return.

In the meantime, two park workers found Matthew floating face down in the water on New Year's Day. As usual, the teenager's black t-shirt was rolled up- exposing his chest and back, and he was wearing a pair of black shorts.

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.
