Drowning Spurs Caution on Lake

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 25-Aug-2011

35-year-old Marlowe Young apparently tried to swim to shore from a pontoon boat he and three friends had rented from a nearby

marina recently when he drowned. He was not wearing a life jacket. Young was the fourth person to drown in the lake this summer, reports say.

Reports say his friends tried unsuccessfully to rescue but he dropped below the surface of the water. Divers found Young's body the next day a short distance from where he was last seen.

Reports also say the rash of drownings this summer is troubling and that there is a general concern about more drownings before the end of the season.

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.
