Twin Girls Drown in Texas City Accident

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

Twin 9-year-old girls drowned earlier this month when they were swept by water currents near the Texas City dike, just south of Houston, TX.

Reports say the girls, Alexandra and Samantha Suarez, were swimming near the dike Sunday morning when a current pulled them out into the bay. The girls' father attempted to rescue them but he was also swept out by the current, according to the statement.

Emergency crews were immediately dispatched by Coast Guard Air Station Houston, as well as Station Galveston, which launched a boat to find the three swimmers. Two of the three were found - the father and one girl -- but neither the father nor the girl was responsive at the time. The body of the missing sister was found after it washed up onto the beach near the Texas City dike in the evening, reports say.  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.
