Woman Drowns in Sinking Boat

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 21-Aug-2011

Suffolk County, New York police are continuing their investigation of a drowning of a woman who was aboard a sinking boat in Port Jefferson.

Reports say that 71-year-old Georgia Johnson, of Patchogue was fishing when the boat she was on started taking on water and began to sink. Johnson could not swim and was not wearing a life jacket.

Although reports say Johnson tried to stay afloat on a seat cushion, she was eventually overcome by the water. Eventually, she and two other passengers were rescued and brought to shore. But Johnson was unresponsive and transported to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The others were treated and released, reports say. There was no word on who the boat belonged to.

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.
