Snowplow Kills Pregnant Woman In Brooklyn; Doctors Save Baby

A pregnant woman, 36, was fatally injured in a Bay Ridge parking lot after being hit by a snowplow.

The heartbreaking tragedy occurred as the woman, eight months pregnant, was loading groceries into the trunk of her car. The snowplow, a bobcat with an attached bucket, was travelling in reverse when it collided with the mother-to-be.

The woman's husband was helping with the groceries but could do nothing to prevent the small but powerful vehicle from hitting his wife.

The victim was rushed to the hospital where she died, but doctors were able to save the life of her son via a cesarean-section birth.

New York City snowplow accidents are relatively rare but, as we learned in the Bay Ridge collision, they may be deadly when they do happen.

In that situation, the surviving family members may seek legal recourse from a variety of parties. The bobcat operator, snow-removal company and grocery store could all potentially be defendants in a wrongful death lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed in a parking lot, an experienced NYC premises liability attorney can help you assess your legal options.
