Father of Twin Girls Dies from Injuries Suffered in Lifesaving Attempt

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 9-Oct-2010

The father of the twin nine-year-old girls who drowned near the Texas City dike earlier this month has died, reports say.

Hector Suarez-Palacios died Friday morning after being on life support after an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his twin daughters when they were swept out to sea while swimming. After seeing them struggle, Suarez-Palacios jumped into the water - but was caught in the same current that took his daughters' lives. Emergency crews were immediately dispatched and two of the three were found - the father and one girl -- but neither the father nor the girl was responsive. He died days after the accident.

The body of the missing sister was found after it washed up onto the beach near the Texas City dike in the evening.  The man and girl were taken to the hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead. The father, Hector Suarez-Palacios, was reportedly on a life support system in the Mainland Medical Center. The Suarez sisters were students at M.E. Foster Elementary School in the Houston Independent School District.

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.
