Honolulu Surfer Narrowly Escapes Drowning in Surf

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 2-Jun-2010

Beachgoers dragged a boogie boarder to safety in Honolulu last month, saving him from drowning when the unidentified youth got himself into trouble while on his board, reports say.

The youth was in the water in Hanapepe Place, off China Walls, a popular surf and boogie board location in Honolulu, Hawaii last month. When he got into trouble and lost his board, he floundered in the surf by himself when some swimmers on the beach noticed him. 

Going to his rescue, several people assisted the exhausted youth back to the beach. A bystander called Emergency services and the man was treated on the scene and was revived. He was still transported to a local hospital for some cuts and scratches to his legs and back.

Thankfully, the Hawaiian swimmer ended up safe. Some rescues don't have such a happy ending. In cases where the water injury leads to severe injury or death, victims' families often have recourse.

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.
