Border Patrol Rescues Illegal Alien From Drowning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 3-Mar-2011

U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued a man from drowning on a Monday morning last month, reports say.

In an attempt to avoid capture by agents after he had made illegal entry in the United States, the man began swimming back across the Rio Grande River where Border Patrol agents are not allowed to pursue him.

But he began to struggle and requested assistance about the midpoint of the river. US Border Patrol Agents from the McAllen Outpost were patrolling the river by boat and spotted him as he began the swim to Mexico, then realized that he was in trouble. They maintained a safe distance by boat and threw him a flotation device, which helped him stay afloat and make a safe return to Mexico, 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.
