Infant Dies after Emergency C-Section Follows Tragic South White Rd Crash in San Jose

San Jose, CA — On Sunday, May 19, 2024, an infant who had been delivered via emergency C-section after a severe car crash in San Jose died in the hospital, according to BAYCN.

The collision occurred at approximately 8:45 PM on May 15 at the intersection of Farringdon Drive and South White Road. The San Jose Police Department reports that a pregnant woman was driving a 2018 white Ford sedan northbound on South White Road. As she attempted to turn left onto Farringdon Drive, her vehicle collided with a 2016 black Jeep SUV that was traveling southbound.

The force of the impact necessitated an emergency C-section to deliver the baby, who was in critical condition. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, the infant passed away on May 19. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

This tragic loss marks the 18th traffic-related fatality in San Jose this year. The community mourns the loss of the young life and extends heartfelt condolences to the grieving family.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.

A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of parties who bear even partial liability can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
