Pregnant Woman Struck by Taxi in San Ysidro, Lost Unborn Baby

A 28-year-old pregnant woman was struck by a taxi at 4800 Camino De La Plaza on January 3, 2012, around 7:30 p.m. in San Ysidro. According to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros, woman was crossing the street (not in a crosswalk) when a westbound taxi hit the in the roadway.

The woman was seven months pregnant and lost her unborn child in this tragic pedestrian crash. The pedestrian also suffered severe head trauma and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Traffic Division is investigating the incident. If the motorist is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he could be held responsible for this car accident that killed an unborn child and injured a pedestrian.

At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County taxi cab accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.

The loss of the unborn child is inconsolable. The victim’s family members may file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation to cover medical, hospital and treatment cost, loss of love, and other accident-related damages.

Our personal injury law office sends sincere condolences to the family for such a heart rendering loss and prays that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon and do not prove fatal.
