Toddler's Aunt Charged in Boy's Drowning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 28-Aug-2011

The aunt of a New Jersey toddler has been charged after the boy drowned in a New Jersey lake earlier this month, reports say.

Reports say Felicia Tucker, 26, of Monroe Township, has been charged with second-degree endangering of a child in the death of her nephew, who was two-and-a-half when he died.

Reports say Tucker allegedly called police after finding the front door of her home open and the boy missing. The boy, who reports say was autistic, was found by Tucker and a friend in about three feet of water in nearby Victory Lake.

Emergency crews were summoned and the boy was transported to the hospital. But after nearly two hours on a respirator at the hospital, he was pronounced dead, reports say.

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.
