Drunk Teenager Nearly Drowns in Apartment Pool

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 24-Aug-2010

A 16-year-old Huntington Beach girl is recovering in the hospital after nearly drowning while drinking alcohol in an apartment complex pool, say reports.

The pool accident occurred earlier this month at the Ocean Air Apartment Homes, a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean. The girl had apparently slipped into the water and lost consciousness - either from alcohol or from an inability to swim or both. Reports say friends saw her and pulled her out of the water. One of her friends performed CPR and was able to get her breathing before EMS arrived. She was taken to a local hospital and is recovering.

Police found the teenagers, who had all been drinking heavily, at the poolside, reports say. There were no adults at the pool. Two teenage boys were initially detained but later released; and the area was marked off as a crime scene. But after further investigation, the incident was ruled an 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.
