Basketball Player Drowns

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 5-Sep-2011

A member of Mission High School's 2010 Academic Athletic Association championship boys' basketball team, Stafone Jackson, 20, died on a camping trip of an apparent drowning earlier this month.

Reports say that a swim with his friends was more difficult than it appeared and about halfway back, Jackson began yelling for help and quickly sank before his friends could get to him.

Jackson, who was entering his second year at UC Riverside, was at the Union Valley Reservoir in North El Dorado when Jackson's friends called local authorities to report the possible drowning. After initial search crews were unable to locate Jackson, his body was found roughly 150 feet offshore later in the afternoon.

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.
