Cruise Passenger Jailed

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 13-Jun-2011

A cruise passenger ended up in jail in Cozumel during a port call, reports say, after he and his wife and four children, ages 17 to 25, rented a Jeep to explore beaches on the island.

The incident turned ugly when he turned off the highway onto a beach and collided with a motorcycle he never saw coming. Two men flew off the motorcycle. Burleson waited for an ambulance with the injured men.

The man was taken into custody by police, but the police demanded that he paid cash for lost wages to settle with the injured men. U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe's office was called and eventually, after paying some $6,500 in fines, fees and bribes, the man was released. Reports also say that the two injured men have been in four other similar accidents involving American tourists.

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.
