60-Year-Old Dies On Cruise

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 4-Mar-2011

Reports say a Holland America Line passenger from the US was killed when she was snorkeling at Goff's Caye in Belize and got caught in the boat's propeller.

The incident caused her to be cut quite badly. In addition, her head was slammed against the vessel. She received, among other injuries, a large cut to her right leg and two smaller wounds to the right side of the face.

Apparently, she and her husband were aboard a 65 foot catamaran, snorkeling with three other tourists when she went under the boat. According to reports, injuries such as this are highly unusual, since boats are typically turned off while snorkelers are in the water. Or at Goff's Caye, where the incident occurred, snorkelers are usually at the back of the island, while the boats are moored in the front.

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.
