Father Charged in Son's Drowning Death

Lewis & Clark County charged Leo Mathis, Sr. with negligent homicide in his son's death, after his son slipped out of his grasp while they were trying to cross a creek.

Reports say that charges were filed because Mathis had tested over the legal limit in a breathalyzer after the incident.

Search and Rescue Crews have been searching for a backpack near the banks of Prickly Pear Creek on Tuesday evening that they believe holds evidence in the drowning death of 3-year old Leo Mathis, Jr. in June.

Mathis was in court recently requesting changes to his bond requirements so that he can work outside the county. Meanwhile, the investigation is continuing.

  1. 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.
