The AP and Huffington Post report there will be no criminal charges filed
against the taxi driver who plowed into a crowd outside Stingaree nightclub
on Feb. 12, despite injuring 35 people. SDPD says there is insufficient
evidence to charge the 52-year-old driver.
Police have not determined what caused the crash, but think it's likely
the driver fell asleep at the wheel. The Sheriff's Department has
suspended the driver's taxi license.
Those injured face an uphill battle getting their medical bills paid. In
many of the cab-related injury cases I've handled over the years,
cab companies tend to maintain the lowest level of insurance permitted
by California law -- $15,000 per person, up to $30,000 per accident.
If you, or someone you know, has been injured in an accident through no
fault of your own, you need an experienced, aggressive injury lawyer to
make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
