Drowning Boy Saved by Six-Year Old Rescuer

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 1-Mar-2011

Two-year-old Cody Guest was moments away from drowning at Rokewood Swimming Lagoon when his friend Gracie Fuchshofer saw him flailing as if he were in trouble.

Gracie made her way to him and pushed the toddler, who was by then face down in the water and motionless, to the shore and called lifeguards. At the same time, Gracie's mother saw her daughter pushing the lifeless body and ran to the shore to pull the two-year-old out. Another bystander cleared his airways and the toddler regained consciousness.

The boy was reportedly in perfect condition since the accident, but both Gracie and Cody - as well as their parents - are more cautious when it comes to water and water safety now.

When tragedies such as this are averted, it's simple to relax and reflect. But what if things had been different? Having any assistance is often crucial for the victims - or the victims' families.

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.
